Did VRL choose the families?
VRL is not able to choose the families receiving medical debt forgiveness. The families are part of independently negotiated and purchased medical debt portfolios owned by RIP Medical Debt. There is no religious requirement for forgiveness.
Can I apply?
Because VRL does not choose the families receiving medical debt, there is no application process to include your debt in the portfolio. However, if you are struggling with the weight of medical debt, RIP Medical offers a variety of resources on their website you may find helpful.
Do you know if my debt is included?
Due to privacy limitations, VRL does not see the names of those on the list of forgiven debts. Those whose debts are paid will receive a letter notifying them their debt has been paid directly from RIP Medical.
Is RIP Medical Debt a reputable company?
RIP Medical debt is reputable company that many churches have partnered with to accomplish similar goals. They are committed to financial transparency and publish their audited financials on their website each year.
