ATLANTA - RIP Medical Debt

During the past nine months, Elizabeth Beck of the Valuation & Advisory Group based in the firm’s Atlanta office, has raised nearly $275,000 for RIP Medical Debt to abolish a total of more than $45 million in medical debt in Georgia.

RIP Medical Debt is a national nonprofit which purchases medical debts belonging to the most burdened Americans in large, bundled portfolios from debt buyers and collection agencies for a fraction of their face value. Every $1 abolishes $100 of medical debt on average.

Elizabeth recently spoke with Savannah Durban for a Q&A about her efforts.
