So if you googled "lien", you would know this:<quoted text>
Which isn't going to happen.
No judge is gonna put a family on the street for a medical bill, ESPECIALLY when the guy with the bill is more than willing to make payments.
noun \ˈlēn, ˈlē-< 1;n\
law : a legal claim that someone or something has on the property of another person until a debt has been paid back
You are still stuck with the stupid notion that a doctor or a hospital has some sort of obligation to accept a payment plan- wake the f*ck UP, RR- they are NOT in any way obligated to accept ANY payment plan you might put forth and all the more should your medical debt be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
What- you think people who have gone bankrupt due to unpaid medical bills wouldn't also have thought of a payment plan that was OBVIOUSLY not accepted by those who provided medical services?
And LOL!! No judge is gonna put a family on the street for unpaid medical bills, yet many have found themselves on the street for unpaid mortgages to banks???
Are you living in the REAL world at ALL or is your entire existence lived in the fantasy world where your god lives?
At any rate, with a court order, people CAN lose their homes to pay off medical bills.
It happens and while probably not very often, it not only DOES happen, it CAN happen.
If you needed surgery that cost a total of $200,000 (doctor and hospital) what makes you think they would have to accept monthly payment of $1,000 or even $2,000 a month- which is a lot of money, but not when it would take 200 months at $1000 a month and 100 months at $2000 a month to pay off your debt and that doesn't even include possible interest??
Are you OUT OF YOUR MIND? You must be if you think ANY provider of ANY service has ANY obligation to wait a minimum of EIGHT years to be paid in full?
Your sense of entitlement is a disgrace.
But I understand; after all, you ARE a conservative and so you think health care providers owe you the courtesy of waiting to be paid.
NO ONE owes you SQUAT, pal and not only are you a lousy Christian, you are also a lousy conservative since you seem to take no notice of their credo of taking personal responsibility and accountability.
