Abolish medical debt at pennies on the dollar.
Every $100 you donate relieves $10,000 in Medical Debt

Together we’ve relieved
in medical debt for 7,118,023 Families— but there’s still a long way to go.
Given the odds, you likely know a few people that are impacted by mounting medical debt.
We’ve received thousands of stories from people around the country sharing their experiences with debt relief. Here are just a few.
How RIP Works
Over a hundred million Americans, one in three, struggles with the weight of medical debt.
You make a donation
We use data analytics to pinpoint the debt of those most in need: households that earn less than 4x the federal poverty level (varies by state, family size) or whose debts are 5% or more of annual income.
RIP buys medical debt at a steep discount
We buy debt in bundles, millions of dollars at a time at a fraction of the original cost. This means your donation relieves about 100x its value in medical debt.
Together we wipe out medical debt
People across the country receive letters that their debt has been erased. They have no tax consequences or penalties to consider. Just like that, they’re free of medical debt.
