Depending on the jurisdiction, the executor of the deceased person's will is generally responsible for paying all remaining bills from his estate. So if you are your father's executor (and the executor is normally named in the will) then you are usually responsible for paying his debts which will often include his final medical bills. There may be exceptions depending on the location and other circumstances.
