Filing on senior citizens
My mother is 80 and my step dad is 83. He has been in the hospital several times in the last few years. My mom is telling me that the hospital has turned her account over to Citibank for collections and now they have called her and told her they are adding 15% interest a month on her unpaid bill. She has had so many doctor bills, hospital bills and ambulance bills that she cannot pay all in full.
My question is can they charge 15% interest on her bill and can they turn senior citizens over for collections when they just have Social Security as an income? The also said they could garnish her social security check that is a direct deposit to her bank account, surely that is not possible, is it???
