|Limitations on Charges, Billing, and Collections|
|Maine law limits nonprofit hospital billing and collection practices.
Maine law requires hospitals and other health care providers to notify consumers of the availability of any payment arrangements offered. In addition, a payment arrangement offered by a hospital must provide a consumer with the ability to “reasonably rehabilitate, cure, or remedy” the default status of a medical debt under terms established by the hospital. These must include (but are not limited to) the option to pay in full or make six consecutive and timely monthly payments. Me. Rev. Stat. tit. 9-A, §5-116-A.
