What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? ARKANSAS.
My husband and I live in Arkansas. He was having chest pains and went to the ER, here in our home town. They did not keep him, but by the weekend he was really in pain, so he went to LA. hospital. They admitted him. He spent 2 weeks in a hospital in Louisiana in the ICU and died in the hosipal. All bills were filled on his medicare. It paid, but there were balances left. I called our hometown hosiptal for the balance and I was told I did not have to pay it. Because he died, I the wife, is not responsible to pay the hunband debt. They would just write it off. However, I am getting a huge balance bill from the hosiptal from LA., wanting me to pay the bill. They sent me papers asking questions about my wages (howmuch) and so. I did not sign any papers when we cked. into the hospital. My question is, What is the LA. State Law on a wife being resposible for her husband debts. Like I said, I'm in AR. and the debt is in Lousiana. Thank you.
