Are the parents of a minor pregnant child responsible for her medical bills?
Not exactly , here parents from both the sides, that is the girls parents and also the boys parents should pay for the medical bills. It should not be left entirely on the girls parents as the boy was more responsible for this mess.

In Tennessee a minor who is 14 or older is considered an emancipated adult for all medical care related to the pregnancy so who is responsible for the medical bills the minor or the parents?
If a minor is legally emancipated it is assumed that they have no more connection with the parent, and that the parent is no longer financially responsible. Therefore, the chi…ld is held responsible for bills.
No they are not personally responsible for the medical bill. One of the primary reasons to open an estate is to resolve such debts. The estate has to pay off the debts. If the… estate cannot do so, they distribute as best they can. If the court approves the distribution, the debts are ended.
No, but bear in mind that the costs will come out of the parents' estate first. So if a single parent died with assets worth $12,000US, the medical bills will be paid after… the necessary amount of assets have been liquidated. The child will then inherit the rest. If the medical bills are higher than the deceased's estate, then all of it will be taken, but the rest of the debt will be written off. Note also that many countries have laws that consider it an attempt at fraud, for a terminally ill patient to sign all their assets over to someone else before death, to avoid the patient's debts being paid out of their estate, post-mortem.
Not unless the parents entered into a contract with the hospital, doctor, etc. that provided the care.
yes, we are financially responsible for our kids until they are 18, in most states, 2 states, I believe it is until they are 19. If they break it we pay for it. . Financial… responsibility falls on the parents until the kid turns 21 in NY

Who is responsible for the medical bills of a pregnant teenager of divorced parents in Washington state?
The parent who has the custodial and legal right to the child/teenager is responsible for the medical bills of the pregnant teenager. However, if the court ruled for one of th…e parents to provide medical care that person is responsible for the medical bills. In that case, the court ruled parent is primary payor and the other parent is the secondary payor. The teen should be made to be responsible by helping to pay for the care of herself and perhaps the boy who got her pregnant. If she chooses to give the baby up for adoption, the adopting parents may pay for her pregnancy care and delivery. There are also free clinics that can help out, places like Planned Parenthood or Crisis Pregnancies Counseling Centers. Beware, Planned Parenthood is pro-abortion. Abortion is not very safe for young teens and our country really needs babies that can be adopted. If the teenager choses to keep the baby the father should help with care and expenses of the child. Time for them to grow up!
