I can't pay my medical bills from the hospital. What can I do?
Dear Senior Legal Line,
I can’t pay my medical bills from the hospital, as much as I’d like to, but I just can’t pay it on my income of Social Security retirement benefits. I worry that I will be sued by the hospital if I don’t pay it off, and if when they win, they’ll garnish my bank account so I can’t pay my rent, my other bills, or even buy food. I’m losing sleep over this. What can I do?
