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
- fourteen new judgments to hospitals, doctors, or other medical providers, totaling $190,890
- four satisfied judgments, for $32,371
- and one bankruptcy, for $20,397
Here’s the breakdown by hospital:
- Crouse had eight, including three repayments, for a net of $15,903
- St. Joes had four, with one repayment, for a total of $32,873
- SUNY Upstate had six, totaling $125,102
A local orthopedic group had the remaining judgment, for $5,138.
The paper publishes only those accounts of at least $5,000.
