Hi, and Welcome to JustAnswer. Thank you for your question.
My name isXXXXX am an Attorney and would be glad to help
When a hospital sends a bill to a patient, they want and expect payment in full of the entire amount. Creditors, including hospitals, can garnish your wages, but they must first sue you, obtain a judgment, ask the Court to issue a "Writ of Garnishment", then the judgment creditor can serve the Writ of Garnishment on your employer and your employer would have to obey the Writ of Garnishment or else he will be in Contempt of Court.
