My 35 year old husband was diagnosed with cancer and transferred to OHSU for two weeks inpatient care and 1st chemo treatment . He didn't have insurance for those two weeks . We bought insurance effective May 1 , 2012 even though we can't afford it really . He is in remission , still can't work due to severe chemo induced neuropathy . Trying to get SSI and has hearing in April . I am the only income and I don't make enough to cover our living expenses . Headed for foreclosure . Hospital now sending accts to collection - OHSU faculty goes to NCO collection agency and OHSU Hospital and Clinics goes to the State of Oregon DESPITE the fact I have made regular payments . Am I liable for these medical bills ? Bankruptcy isn't an option . Had to file 7 when we lost our jobs a few years ago .
