Thank you for sharing this important story. Unethical practices by debt collectors in hospitals are yet another tactic consumers need to be aware of. As the Times article states, these are “increasingly desperate” strategies to recoup payments. Here in Ohio, the state Supreme Court ruled last year that hospitals are allowed to bill a patient’s auto insurance company at whatever price the hospital determines for services provided to a person injured in a car accident. To read now that debt collectors are seeking payment before any procedure has been performed is even more discouraging and, as the consumer advocate in the article says, “in direct opposition to the supposed mission of these hospitals.”
