The Oklahoman: Oklahoma hospitals sue thousands each year over unpaid medical bills

Trevor Brown, August 13, 2020

"An Oklahoma Watch review of court records since 2016 found that dozens of hospitals across the state have filed at least 22,250 lawsuits against their former patients over unpaid medical bills. In many of those cases, the hospitals have garnished wages to collect anywhere from a few hundred dollars to more than $10,000. The hospitals are nonprofit, for-profit and government-owned ones — some of them founded by charity or religious organizations."
