Helping Arizona Families with Medical Debt

Proposition 209: What you need to know about the Predatory Debt Collection Protection Act

No Arizona family should lose their home or car due to medical emergencies or accidents, or be trapped into unending debt by unfair interest rates on medical care. Prop 209 protects consumers from predatory debt collection by:

  • Increasing the protected value of people’s primary home to better match Arizona’s median home value
  • Increasing the allowed value of protected household goods and bank accounts
  • Increasing the protected value of vehicles
  • Limiting wage garnishment for debt to no more than 10% of disposable earnings
  • Limiting the interest rate on medical debt to no more than 3%

About Our Proposition

Too many Arizona families are suffering because of emergency medical debt and predatory debt collection practices. We can change that.

Our Partnership With RIP Medical Debt

In July, we turned in a record number of signatures to qualify for the ballot. And in partnership with RIP Medical Debt, we committed to erasing medical debt for every signature collected by our volunteer leaders. In total, we were able to eliminate $3.5 million in existing, unpayable medical debt for struggling Arizona families.
