About Undue Medical Debt

A Revolutionary Approach

Undue Medical Debt was founded (originally as RIP Medical Debt) in 2014 by Jerry Ashton and Craig Antico, two former debt collections executives.  Over the course of decades in the debt-buying industry they met with thousands of Americans saddled with unpaid and un-payable medical debt and realized they were uniquely qualified to help those in need.

They imagined a new way to relieve medical debt: by using donations to buy large bundles of debt that is erased with no tax consequences to donors or recipients.

From this idea Undue Medical Debt was born, a New York based 501(C)(3). The results have been spectacular—billions in medical debt eradicated so far, providing financial relief for millions of individuals and families.
