Unpaid Medical Bills

Aggie Hoffman

My father has some unpaid medical bills from a hospital in Maryland that were the result of a medical emergency during his last visit to the States. The bills have been recently turned over to a collection agency. Will not paying this bill affect his chances of obtaining a US visitors visa in the future?

Probably not, unless he also overstayed his visa. Seeking emergency medical care is not a crime. Neither is a civil lawsuit.
