Disabled on Fixed Incomes With Bills. – Alice

We are both disabled and have fixed incomes,& SEVERAL medical bills. When they call about payments they insist that we pay minimum $25.00 for each bill,when I tell them I am on a fixed income they don’t care, they still insist that $25.00 is the least amount that they will take as payment each month until the balance is paid in full. Is this legal? Between deductibles, medications and extras I just don’t know what to do.

Thank you.
