Bill to a Minor
If you were a minor at the time of a Medical Emergency and were adnmitted to a hospitol (nothing was over night just a couple of hours and nothing was discovered for cause of pain, can they bill you? I was 17 at the time and once was for a bad ear ache which they told me was only an ear infection, which i then went to my family doctor to find that my ear drum had ruptured... The other time was for difficulty breathing and severe pain in attempting to breath. I was given Tylenol3 for the pain but paid for it at the hospitol. They could not find a reason for my pain however. I now have debt collectors calling me to pay these bills which I had not known about and was a minor at the time. Are they allowed to do this?
