Hospital Contacting Child About His Parents' Medical Debt
My 16 year old son had physical therapy and we received a huge bill that we are in the process of disputing. Unfortunately we can't pay it right now so we are getting calls asking for my son instead of we parents. These call are coming for the hospital affiliated with PT office of the bill not a collection agency yet. We plan to pay before it hits the collection agency. Is this legal to call the child? I feel so bad for my son and this puts amazing stress on him and guilt.
