As I did for much of last year, I will be tracking health care related filings. I include anything that is clearly a 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.
There must have been more room in the paper today; the listings were a lot longer than last Tuesday. This week, there were 33 people listed with new judgments to hospitals, doctors, or other medical providers totaling $926,022.
This week, there were three satisfied judgments totaling $34,726 to a hospital, doctor, or other medical provider.
And, there were two health-care related bankruptcies listed, totaling $85,093.
The paper publishes only those accounts of at least $5,000.
