NBC25 & FOX 66 hosted a special live phone bank to answer your questions about surviving medical debt.

For the last month, we've been working with the non-profit, RIP Medical Debt and our sponsor ELGA Credit Union to eliminate more than $2.2 million in unpaid medical bills.

Volunteers from ELGA Credit Union manned our phone bank this afternoon taking your calls.

John Margatiris from the Garber Automotive Group donated $4,000.

ELGA Credit Union matched viewer donations up to $5,000.

All of this to help people in mid-Michigan eliminate medical debt and help them manage it.

Just because our phone bank is closed that doesn't mean you can't donate or learn more about medical debt.
