    Answered . It will be no problem. As long as you/she (or your insurance company) pay all the bills.

    The only way that your aunt & uncle will have problems is if your wife tries to get free medical care through a 'means test' welfare-like program.

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . I agree with my colleague. Your aunt and uncle will be charged only if your wife applies for and receives some means tested benefit such as welfare or some State poverty benefits.
