Many medical services are unreasonably expensive, as most of us know. Medical providers typically refuse to discuss cost before or at the time of service. It is only months later that the harsh reality sets in: the bill sent out is outrageously high, without any explanation of why it is due in such amounts. Quite simply, they want it paid, in full, and immediately.
The medical collector threatens with a lawsuit, and offers a payment plan in terms of years for a service that took a few hours or days. The payment plan seems like a cruel way of ruining financial health.
Because there is no agreement ahead of time, no contract has been formed. In other words, the medical collector can be asked “How much is really deserved?” But the collector doesn’t know (or care), and often these claims go to lawsuits and judgments.
