No, there are no laws that regulate monthly payments on such a debt. Hospitals are usually agreeable in working with the person to establish an affordable payment arrangement. This is especially true if the hospital has been certified a trauma center and/or a county or city public hospital rather than a private facility. Many non private hospitals have programs in place to defray cost for persons that qualify for assistance. The best choice would be to contact the hospital's accounting department to discuss the matter before the account is sent to collections.

After 7 years can a hospital make you pay?

That depends on the statute of limitations in your state. In some states yes, in some states no. On the other hand, the statute of limitations does not stop anyone from being allowed to try and collect on an account. It simply means that they don't have any legal basis to collect, that is, they can not take you to court to obtain a judgment agaonst you. In addition, be aware that this is a hospital you are talking about. If you need to use them in the future, and they feel that you owe them money, what kind of standard of care do you think you will receive?
