Do County hospitals take bills to collection?

My boyfriend has a $600 charge from the County Hospital, for a couple xrays and an ultrasound. He definitely doesn’t have the money to pay it. He heard from someone that County Hospitals get state grants annually, and pay off outstanding bills and eventually leave you alone if you don’t pay. Is that true or will this go to collections and ruin his credit?

Answer #1

I know someone in Dade. I will call and check.

Answer #2

you can go with bills consolidation loan, where you can consolidate loan to pay off all your bills debt, there are many online sources who provide bills consolidation loan for people have any credit situation, for your reference my one of friend had recently consolidated his loan from there with bad credit to pay off all his bills debt, you can try this source may this could help you.

Answer #3

I’ve called the hospital before about stuff like this, they’re usually able to set up a payment plan, and will do it pretty much to your liking (as long as they’re getting some money in they’re happy)

Answer #4

Spoke with my friend, she said that it depends on who is handling your boyfriend’s account. She suggested he call the hospital and tell them that he can’t pay. That he is completely without funds and ask if they can help. If they say they can set up a payment plan, ask to speak with a supervisor. Keep going up the chain until someone comes up with an answer, right up to the hospital director. $600 is not much to write off and she said they might be willing to do that, if not they will probably greatly reduce the bill. They can turn over to collections. The funds are there to help those without insurance of any kind.

Answer #5

I’ve never heard of anyone completely clearing their debt, however I have heard of people negotiating their bill and its worked.
