State laws vary, but in many cases, the responsibility for arranging the disposition of a deceased person's body falls to the next of kin or the...View More
I was the victim in a motor vehicle accident while enrolled in Medicare and Pennsylvania Medicaid as my health insurance. I have zero co-pays, deductibles, and out of pocket fees. I know I have to repay both Medicare and Medicaid from my settlement. Under normal circumstances, “balance billing”... View More
A Pennsylvania attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. If you had an attorney on the case, they would be in the best position to answer this - from the case file records, they would probably know how this medical provider billed, their arrangement for payment,...View More

A Pennsylvania attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. I'm sorry for your ordeal. You mention having a pro bono attorney. These concerns may be better to bring up with your attorney than on a public forum where no one knows the details of your case. Good luck
My daughter, 29, was having vision problems and went to Wayne Mem ER, probably 3 yrs ago. The ER docs suspected brain tumor and sent her by ambulance to Geis CMC. After much testing, no tumor was found and the bills were totaling just over $30K. I just found out about this. She tried to forget... View More
problem is that the social worker at the hospital should have filed a medical assistance application. However, if she was poor she may have been a medical assistance recipient and the bills should have gone to Medical Assistance. At this point she is "judgment proof." it doesn't...View More

While I waited for my stitches (under the influence of alcohol), the nurse told me the doctor came in between 5-530 while I was sleeping and decided to let me sleep with the deep wound in my thigh. They told me they were extremely short staffed at the time.. I do admit I had some heated words with... View More
Unlikely that it would be worth the cost of the case, but as members of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice like myself offer free consultations so that you may get informed advice, why not contacting them.
Your leaving however could end the story. Unless your wounds and bleeding...View More
Any trace of marijuana in your system makes it illegal to drive. It is a per se DUI. So while Marijuana is rapidly legalizing the DUI laws are showing no signs of changing in that regards. Can a treatment program force you to stop taking marijuana is another matter entirely. Typical attorney...View More
The problem with your question is that it lacks the context needed to answer. Why they were in your home matters. For instance, many police departments will cuff a person when they are executing a search warrant. Your simply stating "you are not violent" doesn't mean that you...View More
Medicaid has nothing to do with unlicensed autos. If you mean does it make you over assets, it depends on the value. The medicaid statute doesn't, as I recall, get into the registration status of any vehicle--just do you own it, what is its value.
I heard nothing from them for a year, I have no idea why they are billing me, and have not contacted. I received another statement in April. Am I legally responsible to pay them? What is the best way to handle this.
Did you have insurance? Is this because of a copay or deductible? Was there a denial of claim? The statute of limitations for most contract claims (and you may well have signed an agreement to pay) is 6 years in Pennsylvania. So yes, you have to pay attention to it. Start by finding out why and...View More
