My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Indiana
My father is visiting from abroad on a visitor visa. I took him to my doctor and was referred to a cardiologist. At both places, I signed to pay what his visitor insurance will not cover and I intend to do so. Cardiologist wanted to perform an angiogram and if needed an angioplasty or even a bypass surgery. Since we knew that the coverage is not enough and the bills could be large we declined the procedure.
While searching for options my father had to be taken to the emergency room followed by a transfer to the heart hospital where he received angiogram and angio plasty.
At the first hospital I signed for him, as he could not, i.e., I signed that my father accepts financial liability. I have not signed anything at the heart hospital but they took my SS# and a copy of my driver's licence.
I am worried sick as to what my financial liability could be. Appreciate any help/advice.
