Since mid-2012, I’ve been tracking health care related filings. I include anything that is likely a patient debt owed to a hospital, nursing home, physician or physician group, medical supplier, and so on; I do not include filings by insurance companies, many of which are so diversified it would not be a fair assumption that the filing is related to medical care or health insurance.
This week, there were
- eleven new judgments to hospitals, doctors, or other medical providers, totaling $210,265
- no satisfied judgments, and
- one bankruptcy, for $7,500
Here’s the breakdown by hospital:
- Crouse had four, totaling $38,136
- SUNY Upstate had seven, totaling $174,424
A home health services company accounted for the remaining $5,205.
The paper publishes only those accounts of at least $5,000.
