I know there is a law now that your children have to pay your medical bills if you don't. They can put a lien against your children's homes etc. I have medical bills I just incurred in the last year for $70,000.00. I have no job. I had medical insurance which they would not cover anything. I tried to get the charges down but they said since I had insurance I get the insurance rate. However, my question is: Can I file bankruptcy to clear these medical liens or do medical liens still apply after a bankruptcy?
