UVA Medical Center has sued former patients for over $106 million in medical debts

Heather Waldron and John Hawley are losing their
four-bedroom house in the hills above Blacksburg, Va. A teenage
daughter, one of their five children, sold her clothes for spending
money. They worried about paying the electric bill. Financial disaster,
they say, contributed to their divorce, finalized in April. Their
money problems began when the University of Virginia Health System
pursued the couple with a lawsuit and a lien on their home to recoup
$164,000 in charges for Waldron’s emergency surgery in 2017
