Re: Medical Hardship letter
Dear Mr ABC,
I am very sorry to inform you that I am not in a position to afford the payment of Medical bills of PQR hospital for my treatment.
My medical insurance has expired. When I was on my way to the insurance company's office, I had started suffering from severe chest pains. So, I got admitted in a hospital immediately by someone. After doing a lot of tests it was approved that I was having heart attack. My illness was so severe that I was immediately admitted to the ICU and the doctor had to do an open heart surgery. I was admitted in the hospital for a month. As my insurance expired I need to make payments of all medical bills on my own.
When I got admitted in the hospital I was nearly unconscious and I have no relative in this country. As a result, I was on uninformed leave for a month from my office, so they terminated me from my position. My current savings are just enough for covering basic necessities. My financial statement and other supporting documents are attached with this letter.
Though I got a new job this month, my income is falling behind my debts. I assure you to pay your debts but, I need some more time. I hope you will understand my dilemma and offer me a good and reasonable repayment plan.

Whilst writing a medical hardship letter try to look genuine and reasonable in the letter. It would make the recipient trust that you are really a needy person and he/she will grant you a good repayment plan.
