BCFP raises the call for greater oversight for medical debt

Medical debt remains one of the major causes of personal financial struggles in Cuyahoga Falls and throughout the U.S. Due to the high costs of healthcare, many are unable to resolve their medical expenses as quickly as some providers would like. The pressure to resolve medical debts can be a major source of stress, as debtors often worry that they or their loved ones will be refused care in the future because of unsettled expenses. Medical providers are within their rights to this, just as they are to report any delinquent accounts to the three major credit reporting agencies or initiate legal action to collect outstanding debts.

Many is Cuyahoga Falls who are in the unenviable position of needing to file for personal bankruptcy often worry about how doing so will affect not only their financial situations, but also their standing within the community. Some may remember back to a time when such a decision was considered a societal taboo, and allow the fear of being branded as financially irresponsible or being ostracized by family and friends to deter them from seeking needed protection for their creditors. While it's impossible to know the opinion of each and every person within a large community, one can look at public actions such as election results to try and gauge what public opinion may be in this issue.

Should candidate's bankruptcy be an issue in an election?
