This is why I never sign anything at the ER!
Want to hear something funny?
If you have insurance the hospital gives discounts on pricing!
They dragged me to the ER about a year ago. I had "fainted" at the dentist office, I told the dentist "I'd rather die then go to a hospital, do not
call." Of course, they didn't want to be sued so they called 911 and shortly after a crew arrived.
I told them the same thing, I have no money and do not want to go to the hospital. They responded "You don't know this hospital!" Then they strapped
me to a bed and wheeled me into the Ambulance.
Long story short, after sitting in the ER for about 3 hours. (They didn't know what to do with me cause I kept saying I would not pay for treatment.
Loudly.) They sent in the "finiancial vultures". (sign here, initial here, etc.)
All I had to do was say "nope" "nope" "wont sign". After about 10 minutes of this my cousin and mother showed up to rescue me. I started to leave
when the security people came, "You are STEALING! You took treatment and did not sign your bill!!!"
I laughed, and walked out.
Of course they tried to get their money. All I said is that I never agreed to be treated, and since debts need to be valid...Well let's just say my
wallet is as thick as it was when I went into the ER. Minus 400 for my root canal, of course.
My sympathies are with you OP. The medical industry is the only profession that is booming in this depression. The medical industry is the only
profession that legally makes dough off of keeping people ill. The medical industry is worse than any "them" or NWO. Because we know they are real,
we can see their dirty work daily.
(This inculdes ALL doctors, if they recieve a paycheck from this monster. This means they condone the behavior, no excuse.)
1. NEVER SIGN ANYTHING AT A HOSPITAL
2. MAKE THEM PROOVE THE DEBT IS VALID
(A zerox of your bill is not proof of a valid debt. They have to show where you wanted the service (or product), they have to show where you entered
into a contract with them. No contract, no valid.)
3. NO DEBTORS PRISON *yet
(So F*!& em.)
