Lawsuit for medical services

1 Answers. Asked on Jan 27th, 2017 on Insurance - Florida
More details to this question:
My mom was sued by a local hospital for charges from April 2013. For some reason, they had sent the summons to Palm Beach, the home address of the rehab facility she was at upon hospital discharge. My mom has Medicare & Medicaid. I sent them the written response within 20 days stating this. I got an email on 12/20/2016 at 12:16pm from the law firm's manager asking me if my mom would like to work out a payment plan. I need legal assistance to solve this problem.

Your mother - not you - needs to address this and likely needs to hire a lawyer. If she has no money to do so SHE - not YOU should contact local legal aid to see if they can help. By filing a response in court you may already have done irreparable damage to her situation. 

All responses are NOT to be considered legal advice nor to be relied upon in any as such nor to establish any form of attorney/client relationship. Opinions expressed are solely informational and not a substitute for proper legal advice provided by a properly retained after thoroughly researching the issues presented.

Insurance enables people and companies to reduce the risk of suffering a catastrophic financial loss. Insurance attorneys offer a variety of services to both individuals and small businesses. For example, paying a small health insurance premium protects you in the event you are in an accident or diagnosed with a health condition that requires expensive treatment. Individual consumers may commonly purchase health insurance, automobile insurance, homeowner's insurance and/or renter's insurance. Businesses need a variety of policies to protect both their property and the company in the event of a lawsuit. Your insurance lawyer can review your existing policies and advise you on additional policies or coverage that may be necessary to protect you or your company from potential risks. Insurance law firms can also help you challenge insurance claims that have been denied in "bad faith," or in violation of the terms and conditions of the policy. And insurance lawyers can represent you if you are sued for something that is covered by an existing insurance policy.
