    Default Arkansas Medical Debt Statute of Limitations

    Collection agency / lawyers office trying to collect on medical debt hosptial er room... I know Arkansas has a SOL of 2 yrs on medical debt due I have called the AG's office... I believe the SOL I will fall under it, for medical debt back in 04/99, but I'm not sure of the ones in 2005, since I did make a pmt 03 / 24 / 06 ?? , which was last pmt I made due I became disable and now on SSDI, I also just paid a medical debt for my spouse from 1996, but this was before I knew that Arkansas had SOL on medical. How do I handle this since I have a 04/99 medical bill in collections ??? plus how would I know if my medical debts in 2005 will fall under the SOL's ???

    Default Re: Arkansas Medical Debt Statute of Limitations

    How do you figure the limitations period is two years? From what I can see, based on a written contract, it would be five years.

    Unfortunately, under Arkansas law a voluntary partial payment tolls the running of the statute of limitations, and forms a new period from which the statute must be computed. Helms v. Univ. of MO-KS City, 65 Ark. App. 155, 986 S.W.2d 419 (1999).
