Medic in the county announced that they will start garnishing wages of individuals who use their ambulance services.

The task of collecting money will be handed over to the county tax collector office. County recently approved four new jobs strictly for that purpose.

This will apply to patients who are overdue by at least 120 days. Medic says it’s taking this measure because of all the unpaid debt in Mecklenburg County, 123 million to be exact.

A few activists spoke up against the new measures from Medic and asked for new ideas, especially when it comes to people that simply can’t afford it.
