$18M over 3 years to wipe $2Billion medical debt for 500,000 residents

Mayor Eric Adams hired RIP Medical Debt to wipe out more than $2 billion of medical debt. Yes, it is the single largest contract that the non-profit Medical Debt Solution Inc. has ever received.

The devil is in the detail. Where are those 500,000 resident accounts coming from? City hospitals? If so, isn’t it easier to just have the City write them off instead of turning them over to another debt collector?

We know that the City hospital system is already overburdened due to many systemic problems. Isn’t the Mayor sending another bad message by encouraging the public not to worry about paying for medical expenses?
