Can you file for bankruptcy for 7k in medical bills?

Other answer:

ana:
maybe, but it's not worth ruining your credit for years and years for 7k… work out a payment plan…
Jenna:
there's probably more to your financial situation than this one unpaid bill
normally it is a whole raft of creditors demanding payment before you file for b/k
Kristy:
you can but it would be a stupid thing to do for 7k as it would make life more difficult for the next 7 1/2 years…

Do you really want to ruin your credit for 7-10 years over a $7000 bill? Don't sound too smart to me.

Of course you can but your credit being damaged for 5-7 years isn't worth filing bankruptcy. You can easily make that money in less than a year — the ends don't justify the means.

To me, bankruptcy only makes sense if your debt is 20k and beyond, generally speaking.

A lot of times agencies won't sue over medical bills unless the amount is really high. I would just avoid payment and wait for the statue of limitations for your state to run out and then they can't collect. Bankruptcy would only be an option after you got a letter from the court saying they're suing you and that could be a defense mechanism. It's not very likely to happen given the amount though.
