We've Partnered with RIPMedicalDebt to Help Those 
in Need Abolish Their Medical Debt

As part of our comprehensive health care mission, starting in March of 2024, Emerge Weight Loss has partnered with RIPDebtRelief. Moving forward, a portion of every order through Emerge Weight Loss will go towards helping people abolish their medical related debt.

To Date, Emerge has wiped out:

$484,100 of Medical Debt

 

(Updated monthly, last on June 4, 2024)

How it Works:

  • We make a donation - RIP Medical Debt uses 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 - RIP buys debt in bundles, millions of dollars at a time at a fraction of the original cost. This means our 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.

Together

Remember that:

  • Every day 1 in 2 Americans choose between paying medical bills and covering basic needs.

  • Nearly 50%. of U.S. adults delayed or skipped medical care due to the high cost.

  • 50% of U.S. adults wouldn’t be able to afford an unexpected $500 bill.

  • 2/3 of bankruptcies cite medical debt as a leading cause.
