No, Indiana is not a community property state. Indiana is a Tenancy By The Entirety state which means jointly owned marital property passes directly to the surviving spouse and is not subject to probate procedure not creditor attachment when the deceased spouse was the sole debtor.

Is the surviving spouse responsible for medical bills of the deceased spouse in Indiana?

Indiana is pretty much the same as other states. The assumption is that the wife inherits at least half, if not all, of the husband's assets. But the estate has to liquidate all assets before they can transfer them to the spouse. One way or another, the spouse ends up paying the debt. The spouse has some right in all real property owned by the husband. If the assets are not enough to cover the debt, the real property may have a lien placed against it to cover those debts.
