RIP Medical debt – .

One of the most unusual solutions to the problem of medical debt in the U.S. has been the creation of a 501(C)(3) nonprofit called RIP Medical Debt, co-founded by a friend and Huffington Post blogger, Jerry Ashton.

Inspired by Occupy Wall Street’s “Rolling Jubilee” which campaigned for medical debt abolishment, RIP Medical Debt has as its goal the location, purchase and forgiveness of $1B in such debt. RIP gained national attention when it was used by John Oliver in a Last Week Tonight show last year in which he donated almost $15M in medical debt to it.

Since that time, and in alliance with nurses associations, physician activist groups, corporate sponsors, foundations, philanthropists and donors, has acquired enough capital to be able to promise abolishing $100M in medical debt by the end of 2017.

The short, cinematic film essays here are how RIP Medical Debt is seen through my eyes as a documentary photographer/filmmaker.

I will continue to unveil other participants in America’s healthcare struggle over the next several weeks. If you would like to help fund this larger documentary piece, please bookmark this site as well as write me at: info@collectivedreamsproject.com to be on my mailing list when my funding site is launched.
