Just a few days ago my father who was 71 years old passed away leaving huge medical bills. I am the only living heir. We live in TX. I was his POA signing hospital admission papers for him as he had dementia in his last days. He left no life insurance money, no money period. I paid for his cremation out of my own pocket. I closed his bank account so the last social sec. check would go back to the govt. I didn't want to be responsible for it. He also owed the Vets Hospital Monies. Do I have to pay any medical bills left behind? Do I just send the bills back writing deceased on them? I just don't have the money to pay them. Am I responsible for the bills I signed as POA during admissions? Thank u. Name of state is TX(only U.S. law)?
