My mother recently passed away and I as her son made all the calls to the credit card companies & to her medical insurance company as well. Today I received a letter from AARP which says Authorization for release of information. I check a box stating no spouse survives: and answered that I was her Son Below I read a statement that " I certify that given information above is true and correct. The next statement is where my question is it states The claimant agrees to indemnify and hold harmless United healthcare insurance company or United healthcare insurance company of New York from any claims, demand, action, causes of actions whatsoever brought or made in connection with any and all payments made by United healthcare in reliance on this document.". By signing these letters can I be held accountable for any medical bills she has?
I called AARP they said that since there is no spouse and I am her son I can speak for her
since there is no estate/will or executor I just want to make sure that I cannot be held accountable for any medical bills she has during her most recent hospital stay before she passed.
