Post: Payments on medical bills isn't enough
Posted by oreo on 8/30/07
Hard times caused us to lose our medical insurance as we
just couldn't afford the premiums. Then my husband ended
up in critical care for several days and has been
hospitalized twice since. We have diligently made
payments every month, but apparently this isn't enough as
most of the medical providers have demanded payment in
full or they will sue. My question is: Can they sue me
for my husbands bills? Is there anyway for us to save at
least one of our credit scores or can they destroy my
credit rating simply because I'm married to him? I would
be willing to take a loan out against my car if they would
discount the bills like they do for the insurance
companies, but they refuse. Is bankruptcy our only option?
We live in the state of Missouri
