There is a very nice article in the Post and Courier about PSC Commissioner Tom Ervin and his wife Kathryn Williams‘ donation to RIP Medical Debt a non-profit that helps erase medical debt for people who earn less than twice the federal poverty level. RIP Medical Debt buys bundled medical debts for pennies on the dollar, and forgives the debts of those most in need. Commissioner Ervin and his wife’s donation resulted in $1.5 million in debt being forgiven for 1,000 Upstate residents. Ervin and Williams, who have distinguished careers representing the injured and disabled are well aware of the burden of medical bills on people with low incomes. At the time this post was written, RIP Medical Debt had wiped out over $800,000,000 in medical debts.
