Church helps pay off families’ medical debtMay 14, 2019

EVANSVILLE — A church in southwestern Indiana is helping to pay off $1.5 million in medical debt for families in its community.
Jeff Kinkade, pastor at Evansville’s City Church, tells the Evansville Courier & Press the church is working with Rye, New York-based nonprofit RIP Medical Debt on the effort.
The church won’t know whose debt is paid off, but those families will get a note saying: “We may never meet, but as an act of love in the name of Jesus Christ, your debt has been forgiven.”
The newspaper says City Church will purchase $1.5 million of medical debt for $15,000.
RIP acquires packages of overdue charges for a fraction of their value and forgives them. It’s worked with other organizations, including the Michigan Nurses Association , to clear medical debts.
