THE PRESS ROOM
In Chapter 10 of our book titled “God Medical Debt? Let’s Abolish it,” has a telling paragraph about the future of a non-profit that we helped start – RIP Medical Debt.
“How far this project will have progressed by the time you read this book is unknowable…We can only hope our cause resonates.”
Thanks to the wide publicity generated by the John Oliver Last Week Tonight show and the wonderful response to date, we suspect that the message has landed. Enjoy this video segment.
When the press writes about Obamacare, our nation’s medical “system,” or the inequities created by debt – and particularly unpaid medical debt and the collections industry – they get a “two-fer” in contacting Robert Goff and Jerry Ashton. Actually, they get a “three-fer,” as Craig Antico, CEO of RIP Medical Debt is also “on call.” All three know their business, all are authoritative and trustworthy sources, and each like to present contrarian views that provide light as well as heat.

BUSINESS CREDIT RADIO is honored to welcome Mr. Jerry Ashton. Jerry is an acknowledged veteran, gadfly and critic of the excesses of the credit and collections industry. Inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement’s “Rolling Jubilee” campaign against medical debt, he came out of semi-retirement in 2014 to co-found RIP Medical Debt with the goal of removing one billion dollars in unpaid and unpayable personal medical bills from the backs of fellow Americans. In addition to co-authoring the book The Patient, The Doctor and The Bill Collector: An Obamacare and Medical Debt Collections Survival Guide, Jerry blogs at – the Huffington Post and tweets as @RIPMedicalDebt.
