Can a hospital take you to court for payment, if you are paying them what you can afford a month?

Yes, any creditor can enforce a right to be paid in full by seeking a judgment. With that judgment a creditor can garnish wages and bank accounts, and attach non-exempt properties. Any payment agreement is strictly a matter of courtesy on the part of the creditor, and the debtor has no power to decide what the payment will be.

Best wishes for an outcome you can accept, and please remember to designate a best answer.

Yes.

I am not your attorney nor is any answer I may provide legal advice. You may contact me directly for legal advice only if you are a resident of Tennessee insofar as I only practice in Tennessee.
