I had to go to the hospital E.R. about a year ago. The hospital fees were never paid and now the collection company is suing me. There are a few irregularities though which are:
1) the notice states that I had 20 days to defend myself, however it was delivered a month after being issued.
2) The hospital allowed me to go and did not take any actions and or dismissed a medical condition I had (borderline lethal blood sugar levels). That lack of action almost killed me about a week ago and landed me in the hospital again.
The fees to pay are not that bad but I wonder: is there any way to defend against this that won't leave me on the street?
