I live in the US. I make only 1,200 dollars a month (I work in a small company) no health insurance but I own a small 2 bedroom house where I live. I get sick and have to stay 2 weeks in a hospital, then after I get home and they charge me 100,000 dollars. I can't pay, can they take my home away from me ? 3 possibilites: 1) I go to jail, but I think US laws says I can't for debt 2) I can make a deal with the hospital and only pay back 2 or 3 thousand dollars by a small monthly sum. 3) they take my house , get posession of my home What do you all think happens ? This has always been a vague situation, does anyone know exactly what happens in these cases ? Thanks for any input.
