Just curious if I have any leverage on this. I don’t want to not pay our bills, but I feel this charge is unrealistic. Is there anything we can do?
Insurance paid them $11,750 (which they would have paid had then been in our network) and I have sent another $500 to keep them from filing suit. They call daily wanting balance of their money and even offered to settle for $15,000 if they could withdraw it from our checking accounting. First, we don’t have that kind of money. I have exhausted all attempts to borrow money to pay this bill. I’ve been told because we have equity in our home we can not file bankruptcy without losing our home. We are both 63 and have worked hard for what little we have. It is not as if we were given a choice on this. Any assistance would be appreciated.
