Former debt collector sets up charity to buy back and forgive medial debt (RIP)
Craig Antico, a former medical debt collector, has formed a non-profit called RIP Medical Debt, which buys medical debt on pennies on the dollar so that individual debtors can be forgiven.
NBC News has a video and report here.
I worked for RMA, a debt collector, in the summer of 2003 near St. Paul, MN. It did have a division that collected medical debt.
Antico said he used to make 200 calls a day as a bill collector. That sounds about what I did.
