Being sued for medical debt can result after you have a hospital procedure. For example, you could be uninsured and receive a bill you cannot afford to pay or you could be insured, have a procedure in-network but unbeknownst to you, an out-of-network doctor participated in your care and then you receive a bill you are not prepared to pay. Not only is having to face a lawsuit stressful and upsetting but having this kind of debt could be reported on your credit report and end up hurting your credit score. The good news is there may be defenses to a medical debt claim against you and you may possibly have a counterclaim seeking damages on your behalf.
