I was in the hospital for a week. The hospital sent me a bill. I wrote to the hospital saying I cannot pay.


Can the hospital really force me to pay?



What happens when I never pay the hospital?

You are wanting an opinion, you're wanting an answer.

No, you don't have to pay the hospital.

But you do have to appear in court when the hospital sues you.

If you don't appear in court the judge will just issueca judgement against you.

That judgement will be that you have to pay the hospital, the court costs, and appropriate attorney fees.

You still don't have to pay.

The hospital will just seek a non-payment of judgement and request a judgement to garnish you paycheck or attach income tax returns until the judgement is satisfied.

Or the judge could just throw you in jail on a bench warrant, failure to appear.

Suggestion: get better insurance coverage or don't get sick.

My insurance paid the hospital 80 percent of the bill. Isn't that good enough?

Did the hospital provide you with 100% care?

Which 20% would you have preferred they not provide to you? Sir transport? Life support? A licensed physician?

The hospital said to me that the bill cannot be "written-off".


Is the hospital bluffing?

One way to find out -- call their bluff.

Refuse to pay them.

Hospitals have their own Social Services. Talk to them and see what they tell you about your bill. Usually you call them before going in for surgery but they must deal with surgeries that are unplanned.

I ask for Financial Aid and talk to them. The billing department is pretty secretive about the service but you should be able to get help. Billing departments are a PIA!

I get ssi because I did not work long enough or I did not pay enough social security taxes. But even so, I am suppose to get a livable income. The amount I get is 90 dollars in ssi.

Is social security ripping me off?

Like I said. I only get 90 dollars in ssi.

It's also possible that if you do not pay your bill or don't make payment arrangements the hospital may refuse you service the next time you you need it

I don't believe a hospital, clinic, or physician can refuse medical treatment for many reasons -- outstanding bills is not a reason to withhold medical care. But, I could be wrong.

OP, is just bullshitting -- he has the other thread here asking this same stupid stuff.

]b]Lawyers won't take my case because I am already receiving benefits.
Lawyers say that they help those that have been denied or are applying for the first time.

My answer: stop gambling on horses.

There aren't that many privately owned hospitals anymore -- and even they must treat a patient in a true emergency situation even with an outstanding financial obligation. If they don't they are violating the law and can be sued for medical malfeasance.

Public hospitals CANNOT refuse medical treatment to any patient, regardless.

Doesn't much matter what the hospital wants, or court's. You can't get blood out of a turnip and credit means nothing. Keep on getting treated, they keep on providing and that's the game.
