Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I will do whatever I can to answer your question.
Unfortunately, Minnesota follows the legal doctrine of necessaries which does make a surviving spouse liable for the late spouse's medical bills.
However, the hospital should be willing to work with you by discounting the bill and allowing it to be paid over time.
I hope this is helpful. If you have any follow up questions feel free to post them. It is never a problem.
Thank you.
Loren
