Part two of a front-page Baltimore Sun series on bad hospital debt collection practices included a comment by Baltimore Housing/Consumer Law Unit senior attorney  Louise Carwell. “Most people don’t know their rights,” said Carwell about a client who was illegally sued by the University of Maryland Medical Center for a hospital bill that should have been paid by Medicaid. “There’s lots of judgments entered that need not be entered. Those bills can be really significant down the line. It totallay messes up their credit.”
