Can collections put a tax deduction on you and the your tax refund If its for medical bills?
Only certain parties (typically government agencies) can go after your tax refund directly; private creditors are barred from doing this. However, they can get at the refund indirectly by placing a levy on your bank account, so that they have access to the funds once they are deposited. Keep in mind, though, that a hospital (or any other creditor) would need to have sued you and won a judgment in court first, before they could take any of those steps.
Also, I'm going to move your question to a better category so that you can get a broader set of answers.
Hope that helps.

Tax refunds cannot ceased or offset unless you owe money to the state or federal government or student loans. Once the refund money is in a bank account however, a creditor can freeze or levy the bank account and order the funds to be turned over to creditor. Before this can happen, a creditor would need to sue you an obtain a judgment prior to levying your bank account.
The answer to your question properly, depends on the status of the medical bill collections
