How do I collect an unpaid balance if the patient is in bankruptcy ?
The status of your ongoing treatment of a patient in bankruptcy and the likelihood of collecting from the patient may be determined by the bankruptcy court. The court might issue an order that affects your rights and obligations (e.g., whether to continue ongoing treatment). You should communicate with the bankruptcy trustee to learn whether you have an ongoing duty to treat and when and how to file a Proof of Claim to try to secure payment for past services.
