Are you being hassled by hospital bill collectors in Illinois?
Posted on Mar 22, 2010 in Uncategorized
Our client’s mother was being hassled for by a law firm trying to collect $20,000 for a hospital bill. Our client’s mother had no money. She had been visiting the United States from a foreign country to see her grandchildren when she needed emergency medical care.
No questions were asked. She was attended to and got better. She returned to her homeland.
Now she is being dunned for $20,000 in medical bills.
Nobody told her she could get care if she was unable to pay. Nobody tried to give her a payment plan. Nobody offered her any help at all.
This is against the law in Illinois.
