So, I finally open mail that's been sitting on my table for a week, and apparently the hospital sent my past due bill to a collection agency. Again. No, wait. There's a story.

I have a number of past due bills with this place. Several are already part of a payment plan I was paying on monthly. Then 3 came up that I asked to be added to that payment plan, but they refused to, because doing so would extend payments beyond their timeline (whatever that is). This hospital system is HUGE…
