NEW REPORT: ABC for Health has issued a new report in October 2022 titled "Medical Debt & Collections in Wisconsin: Restarting the Collections Machine." Some Wisconsin hospitals and specialty providers have resumed aggressive collections lawsuits after a pause during the COVID pandemic.

Report: ABC for Health issued a report titled "Medical Debt & Collections: A Better Way Forward for Wisconsin." In a sampling of medical debt collections actions in Wisconsin, where health systems sought over $10 million in judgements, patients were represented by an attorney in fewer than 1% of cases. Health systems were always represented. Click Here to read a copy of the Report. For more information on managing or avoiding medical debt, see ABC for Health’s Fighting Forward Guidebook.

Report: Medical debt collection actions and lawsuits against patients continued during the COVID-19 pandemic at several Wisconsin hospitals. These providers continued to sue patients for unpaid medical bills, despite efforts by state and federal officials to provide flexible eligibility for Medicaid, ACA Marketplace coverage, and certain COBRA requirements.
