Q: What rate of Interest has been accruing ?

Q: If I need to make payments, will I still be eligible for a settlement?
A: If you qualify for a settlement, it is the general rule that it must be paid in one lump sum. However, depending on the circumstances, it is sometimes possible to get that divided into a few payments.
Q: What if I want to pay the bill, but I am under an extreme financial hardship?
A: If the level of hardship is severe, then we will work with you to find a payment plan that will work for us both.
Q: What are the criteria for a hardship settlement?
A: We evaluate each case individually. Generally speaking though, if you are over 60 years of age, are on disability, or are the sole support of a family, you will be eligible for some level of hardship settlement.
