Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!
Legally, unless there is full payment or an agreement in writing, a doctor could do so. Obviously, it is not a wise decision, and in the end, the patient will often end up working out a settlement with the collection agency. If the agency turns it over to a lawyer, the patient will often work it out with a lawyer. If the lawyer is unreasonable, the court will eventually get involved and mediate a payment plan.
They shouldnt, but they technically could. It has happened. The only thing that stops them is a written agreement to accept the payment plan you offered or full payment. Obviously and practically, many creditors wont pursue you if they see you are doing your best to avoid spending time and money
Kindly rate me 5 stars. I wish you the best!
thank you in advance.
Is the answer acceptable?
