"Can Hospitals Garnish Wages"
Can Hospitals Garnish Wages?
Yes, hospitals can garnish wages in some circumstances. Typically, this occurs when a patient has accrued a large amount of debt and is unable to pay it off. In these cases, the hospital may attempt to collect the debt by garnishing the patient's wages. However, there are some limitations on how much money can be garnished from a person's wages. For example, in most states, creditors can only garnish up to 25% of a person's disposable income. Additionally, certain types of income (such as Social Security benefits) are exempt from wage garnishment.
