June 2, 2023
Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison is urging residents harmed by hospital debt collections to contact his office.
Ellison issued a statement Thursday in response to a New York Times story regarding Allina Health and its policy of cancelling appointments for patients with significant unpaid debts.
Minnesotans have had extra protection from hospital debt collection practices that are abusive, harassing or deceptive through an agreement reached in 2005. Ellison renewed that agreement in 2021.
