My adult son passed away recently leaving behind many thousands in student loans and medical bills. We did not sign for liability to pay. He was working FT but had no assets. His health insurance paid for a fraction of the costs. The hospital wants us to apply for welfare on behalf of our son and requested all of his personal info...birth cert., ss card, driver's license, bank/payroll statements, etc. My husband signed the forms giving this collection agency power of attorney to act as liaison but I am reluctant to give over all his personal i.d. and have not done so. I would like to help the hospital that tried to save my son's life but I don't believe we are obligated to see that the hospital gets state money and am suspicious of turning over all his info to strangers.
