medical bills for minors
by: Gerri

In some states, minors can be held liable for medical bills under "necessaries statutes". In addition, in some states parents can be held responsible for these bills.

Unfortunately, I don't know whether that's the case in Colorado. I would strongly encourage you to talk with a consumer law attorney. A bankruptcy attorney may also be able to answer your question.

I would encourage you to read our information about dealing with medical debt collection accounts as well.
