Description

East Idaho News found that when someone has unpaid medical debt that is sent to collections, legal fees often far surpass the original medical bill amount. Patients often don't know their rights, and can't afford legal representation, so they pay large amounts of money to get out of debt - and sometimes, they end up getting arrested or going to jail over unpaid medical bills.
