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.
Things settled down a little this week:
- There were nine new judgments to hospitals, doctors, or other medical providers totaling $145,456.
- There were no satisfied judgments.
- And there was one bankruptcy, for $19,865.
Here’s the breakdown by hospital:
- Crouse had two, totaling $20,769
- St Joe’s had two, for$26,472
- SUNY Upstate added another five, totaling $106,729
A local home health care services provider added the last filing, for $11,351.
The paper publishes only those accounts of at least $5,000.
