Medical Debt Collection
Many individuals and organizations in the medical field grapple with debt collection. In recent years, the prevalence of uninsured people contributed to high rates of default on medical debt. Changes in the health insurance field brought about by the Affordable Care Act may have left many consumers with high deductible insurance policies, further contributing to large quantities of unpaid medical debts.

This is not to say that collection agencies should not be a part of your medical collection strategy. Collection agencies can provide a very cost effective method of collecting smaller co-pay payments and similar debts.
However, when the debts get into thousands of dollars, time is of the essence in collecting this debt. The best way to increase your chances of collection is having a judgment granted by the Court.
