Grassley to hospitals: Explain why you’re suing low-income patients, Mosaic Life Care

“Reports detail a number of instances where Mosaic failed to identify patients who would qualify for financial assistance and who have since been subject to abusive billing and collection practices,” Grassley wrote. “The practices appear to be extremely punitive and unfair to both low-income patients and taxpayers who subsidize charitable hospitals’ tax breaks.”
As ProPublica and NPR reported, the hospital has its own for-profit debt collection subsidiary, Northwest Financial Services, which files thousands of lawsuits each year.
