Minnesota Attorney General Settled with Accretive Health, a Medical Debt Collector, for $2.5 Million

Overwhelming medical debt is one of the primary reasons that people file for bankruptcy. Recently the Minnesota attorney general settled with Accretive Health, one of the nation's largest medical debt collectors, over claims that Accretive had aggressively collected debt from hospital patients. These claims included allegations that Accretive was obtaining payments from patients in emergency rooms and from their hospital bedsides in violation of federal laws which requires hospitals to provide emergency care regardless of whether the patient can pay for the services. Accretive has agreed to pay almost $2.5 million and to withdraw from doing business in Minnesota for six years although they may come back with the attorney general's permission after two years. (See http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/31/business/medical-debt-collector-to-pay-2-5-million-settlement.html). Accretive denies any wrongdoing. Overwhelmed with medical debt?
