Customer Question

I had medical delinquency situation with my mother, who visited us in United states on B2 visa. She had to be admitted to the Emory Johns creek hospital for Congestive Heart Failure 10 days after her arrival to the USA via 911 emergency call. She was in ICU for 3 days and 3 days in general care for which the total medicall bill is $63000. I had purchased a comprehensive visitor insurance coverage for her for the first month ( Nov - Dec 2015) of 100,000$ limit with $250 deductible. I had signed I-134 affidavit of support also while sponsoring her visa in which I had stated that I shall provide for medical expense in addition to other expenses. I signed the admission document which was asked by Emory hospital in the emergency department but did not provide my SSN . My mother does not have SSN being on B2 and I mentioned my name also as emergency contact information for her. Now the insurance company has denied the claim stating they do not cover preexisting conditions. Emory clinic and Hospital have been sending me the bills for past 3 months now and they have sent a final Bill on my mothers name stating that it would go to collections. I tried reaching out to Legal shield - Medical claims attorney but the appeal process seems to be moving very slowly. Insurance company is asking for more documents to provide relating to my mothers past medical History. She had Blood pressure for past 30-40 years and angina pain 20 years back. Insurance company says they are denying the bill for poorly regulated blood pressure, Coronary artery Disease and the medication she received in India. I have I-140 approved through my current employer and was waiting for my date to become current to file I-485. Can this kind of medical delinquency have any effect on my I-485 filing?
