Michael and Teresa Toth

Michael’s career spans 25+ years, specializing in health care revenue cycle management and consulting. He currently serves as Director, Military/Civilian Debt Acquisition at RIP Medical Debt, an organization focused on the abolishment of medical debt for veterans and civilians. Michael and his wife Teresa live in Houston, TX and have four children (Evan 25, Ashley 22, Megan 19 and Nathan 18). The flower on every grave initiative for Houston National Cemetery is close to the hearts of our family as we lost our oldest son Evan, an Army veteran, to an accident in 2018 and he was laid to rest at this cemetery.
