One last tip and we think it's pretty important!
Medical debt is usually interest-free. Once you move the debt onto a credit card or loan, however, you'll almost always start accruing interest charges.

Many hospitals offer assistance programs that can help reduce your bills. You just have to ask!
You should also ask about available payment options – you may be able to negotiate a long term payment plan that works better for your budget.

Verify which charges were (or were not) covered by your insurance. Were any of your claims denied? Does your policy have an out-of-pocket cap and have you met it yet?
