Failed dr bill payment due to low to no income

by Brenda
(Clayton, IL. USA)

I was working for local nursing home and had to have carpal tunnel surgery, after surgery I found out that my insurance from work did not cover it -reason being it was pre-existing condition. I do not have the income to pay the amount due and have been summonsed to court what do I do?

Since you are being taken to court for this debt, we strongly recommend you get legal advice. You need to find out what the collector can and cannot do if you cannot pay and they are awarded a judgment. Please read our pages:
