I live in Oregon. My husband is terminally ill. Some of his bills from 2010 went to a collection agency and they are now billing me. The only income I personally have is Social Security and a small government pension. The only income my husband has is SSI. What can I personally do about being held responsible? The hospital has written off 80% of the bill but there is a sizable outstanding amount. I do not have the ability to pay them anything.
