Can creditors go after you if you don't pay your child's medical bill?

If you are required to pay your child's medical bills, you are responsible for them. Most doctors will eventually turn over the account to collectors if no action is taken. However, many of them will also take payments over time. Collectors of these bills have to follow the same rules as anyone else-- If it is a large amount of money, you might consider bankruptcy. In any case, unpaid bills will go on your credit record.
