Join the End Medical Debt Coalition (Individual)
Do you personally want to publicly support legislation to end medical debt in the state of Maryland?
In the state of Maryland, hospitals are allowed to sue patients over outstanding medical bills. And almost all of them do, even your friendly local community hospital that takes great pride in the "charity care" it provides to your community.
That's why the End Medical Debt Maryland coalition exists. We are a coalition of unions, churches, and other organizations that are working together to pass a bill (HB565/SB514: The Medical Debt Protection Act) in the Maryland General Assembly in spring 2021 that will limit the amount for which hospitals are allowed to sue and put in place other safeguards to protect patients.
Nobody chooses to have medical debt, and hospitals should not be allowed to prey on patients in this way.
