"Can Hospitals Garnish Wages"
The answer to the question "Can Hospitals Garnish Wages?" is yes. Hospital debt collectors have the legal right to garnish wages for any unpaid hospital bills. This means that part of an individual's income can be taken directly out of their paycheck and sent directly to the hospital as payment for services rendered.
Hospitals generally use a third party debt collection agency to collect unpaid medical bills, and these agencies usually have a legal right to garnish wages in certain states or jurisdictions. For example, in California they are allowed by law to take up to 25 percent of an individual’s disposable earnings each pay period, while other states may allow different percentages or require court orders prior to taking any action.
