Two Summons for Same Medical Bill
(Colorado springs, CO)
Almost 2 years ago in 2008 my sister had a baby and she had insurance. Her percentage was sold to a collection agency after she couldn't pay the hospital. She made payment arrangements and after she couldn't pay any longer her wages were garnished for the amount owed.
Now a month after her garnishment stopped the same collection agency says she still owes on this same debt because the hospital billed a portion to medicaid which wasn't paid. Of course it wasn't paid she didn't have medicaid and she didn't provide them with that type of information. Now they are trying to garnish for this amount owed and more intrest and another set of legal fees...can they do this?
Also the same amount she was just garnished for is the same amount they are trying to garnish her again for with a different acct number but same service date.
