NCO Financial Systems INC. Trying to charge me court and lawyers fees for an amount that was charged off by hospital Horsham, Pennsylvania

*Consumer Comment: I would tell them flat out
I have some unpaid medical bills which the hospital sent to collections. My husband was out of work, as many people are during these tough economic times. The hospital has assistance programs to people who are unable to pay their bills. I filled out the application, and was awaiting the approval to get the 10% my insurance did not cover charged off.
In the mean time, I was served papers stating NCO was taking me to court, which the date was sometime at the end of this month. Last week I received papers from the hospital stating that I was relieved of all my hospital debt. I called NCO just to make sure they recieved that information, which they did, but asked me when I would be able to pay off the $328 I still owed. I asked them from what doctor that debt was, and they told me it wasnt hospital debt, it was attorney and court fees. When I asked why should I pay that, and that I never went to court, or signed any papers the woman (with a major attitude) told me I had to pay it because it was money they had to pay to file court papers.
This sounds like a personal problem to me, and I don't think I should have to pay those fees. I told her that there is no way I can pay that right now, and I have much more important bills to pay. She told me with an attitude, that I should "sit down and go over your bills, and figure out when you can pay us".
Is it legal for them to make me pay THEIR court filing fees?? Thanks for the help ahead of time.
