"Can Hospitals Garnish Wages"
Can Hospitals Garnish Wages?
According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, medical debt is the number one cause of debt in America. If you're among the many who are struggling to pay off medical debt, you may be wondering if hospitals can garnish your wages.
The answer is maybe. If you fail to make payments on your medical debt, your hospital could send your account to collections. Once your account is in collections, the collection agency may then try to garnish your wages.
However, there are some circumstances in which hospitals cannot garnish your wages. For example, if you're on Medicaid or Medicare, or if you're receiving disability benefits from Social Security, your hospital cannot garnish your wages.
If you're struggling to pay off medical debt, it's important to understand your rights and options.
