What is the name of your state? OHIO
A quick question, posting for a dear friend of mine, who recently went through a successful heart bi-pass surgery. My friend and her husband are retired, no health insurance, limited income, limited savings. They are no facing over $100,000 in medical bills. We have heard that as long as you are making an effort (sending $20-$25) a month per bill (surgeon, hospital, anesthesiologist, etc) that they can not come after you? They are enduring the phone calls "refinance you house", "we're going to turn it over to collections", etc., so they are very concerned.
My friend plans to go back to work as soon as she's given the OK, but she's very concerned and wants to pay her bills.
We'd like to get the facts, please.
