Can Medicare patients be send to collections? Is there a law/rule against it?

They can't be charged late fees, correct?

As long as you have an ABN for the non-covered charges, or if it's just their deductible/coinsurance amounts, I don't see why not. They've got to pay their part just like everybody else.

I know you can't do late fees so I wanted to make sure there is no Medicare rule being broken

Thanks
