Medical Debt Interest

SB 5456 was disappointingly voted out of the Senate and is scheduled for a hearing in the House on March 16th. It was also amended on the Senate floor. Originally the bill would have allowed debt collectors to charge interest from the time of service, and now that moves the marker to 120 days after service. This amendment does not materially change the bill, or alleviate our concerns. The bill has now made its way to the House, where we are working hard to oppose it.
