Who is responsible for your deceased father's second wife's medical bills?

It would seem logical that she would be responsible for her own medical bills. However, if your father is still married to her, he may have substantial responsibility for her medical bills. If your father has died but there are provisions in his will that call for portions of his estate to support her medical needs, or if there is insurance covering her, then others may have some responsibility.
