Spouse's responsibility for medical bills in Ohio
My husband died in April 2008. I paid as many medical bills as I could out of my personal funds. Last week I received a call for my husband for collections of a medical bill that was made two months before his death. I do not recall receiving a bill in the first place. Am I responsible for paying this debt? The collector was not very nice. I told him to sue me because I thought I was not responsible for the debt. Now I'm not so sure. My husband did not have an estate. Our house went directly into my name because we had a survivorship deed and everything else we had went directly into my name as well. I didn't go through probate.
