On The Record
Over the past decade, Maryland hospitals filed more than 140,000 lawsuits against patients, to recover unpaid bills. The median amount owed was just $944. Left unpaid, this debt can lead to a lien on a person’s home or car, or even garnished wages. Marceline White of the Maryland Consumer Rights Coalition, describes the crushing burden of an unpaid hospital bill.
