|Limitations on Charges, Billing, and Collections|
|Kansas limits nonprofit hospital collection practices.
If a person’s or a family member’s illness prevented the person from working for over two weeks, a court may not order the garnishment of that person’s wages to repay a medical debt until two months after his or her recovery from the illness. Kan. Stat. Ann. §60-2310(c). (2012). Other restrictions limit the percentage of an individual’s wages that may be subjected to garnishment, and generally preclude a creditor from issuing more than one garnishment against the earnings of the same judgment debtor during any 30-day period. Kan. Stat. Ann. §60-2310(b) (2012).
