    Insured man gets collection notice for $108K hospital bill

    This is outrageous. Hopefully he can do Chapter 7 without losing too much.

    That was a horrible story..a lot of lessons in it. I'm glad it worked out in the end and the amount he owed was reduced major big time!

      Yes, he certainly didn't deserve to be forced to file BK7 or BK13, although I really wouldn't have been surprised if he had! So much of this whole BK process is inherently unfair that many innocent victims of medical malpractice or unavoidable catastrophic illness end up in an relentless bk13 because they have no other recourse.
      Well,the lesson appears to be knowledge of which hospitals are in network and always be ready to put up a fight if you are fraudulently charged.
