Yes, although it is not actually the hospital that pursues collection, it is a medical collections agency. If the collector decides they cannot collect the money owed by regular collection procedure they can file a lawsuit or enter into arbitration. If the plaintiff (collector) wins, they will receive a judgment and execute the writ of judgment as a property lien. Although there are some states prohibit liens against homesteads that are owned jointly by a married couple.

I can only assume you are asking how can someone put a lien on a home in Canada? The owner of the home would have to owe you or the government a lot of money before you could put a lien on their home and even if it was a private affair I'm not 100% sure a private party can put a lien on someone's home. It's usually banks and or money owed to governments who put liens on a persons home.

It is entirely possible that they can place a lien on the house. The hospital is entitled to place a claim against the estate and its assets. If the house is an asset, they can attach a lien to it to get their money.

It may depend on the state, but generally speaking, yes. Anyone you owe money to can put a lien on your home if they go through the proper legal process, which may be different depending on where you are.
