In the United States, medical debt is one the leading causes of bankruptcy. Even the most prepared individuals may not be able to pay the crushing bills that accumulate over the course of a long illness or an unexpected and severe injury. The situation is even direr for those with little or no insurance to cover part of the cost of their care.
When hospitals cannot collect payment, they retain the services of collection companies. The aggressive tactics used by these companies — constant calls, an endless stream of demand letters and even threats — can cause undue stress and make a person feel hopeless.
