Product: Medical debt
Issue: Written notification about debt
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I did receive a written notice, and it did inform me that if I did not dispute that I would owe the collected amount. I was provided services that I repeatedly tried to refuse, and therefore I was forced to undergo these services which told them over and over I could not afford to pay for and I did not want these services.
If I did not comply and sign what they asked me to, I was not allowed to leave. I was also informed by the company who sent this bill to the debt collector, that I was not mentally well enough to be without care and supervision, which to my understanding means anything I signed during that time was due to the emotional impairment the hospital said I was under. They considered me legally not sane at the time, meaning anything I signed was due to emotional distress. Again, I was not allowed to leave until I signed papers which I was given no choice but to sign. I should not be expected to be held accountable for signing papers while under these conditions and under the understanding that I would be kept XXXX there until I complied.
