Can you file medical bills on a bankruptcy?

Of course. In fact it is the number one cause of BK filings. And file BK on everything you have, assets and debts. Some are exempt from being liquidated or cleared, but you do file them. I had a bill that was not large enough to justify filing for bankruptcy but still difficult to pay. I used to negotiate my 10k medical bill down to 4k. Obviously filing for BK may be the best case if you have very large bills.

Can you file Bankrupcty on medical bills?

Yes, it is one of the most common reasons for bankruptcy filings. But, you must prove to the court that you are unable to repay the debt. Just incurring a medical bill does not entitle someone to successfully file bankruptcy and discharge the bill so you are no longer required to repay it. If by being required to repay the bill would make you homeless and lacking of basic necessities of life you will probably be able to successfully file. On the other hand if the court decides that your situation is such that you could repay - over a period payments and you would still be able to have the basic necessities like food, home, etc. Then a limited form of bankruptcy occurs, called a Chapter 13.
