What would happen to pending hospital bills if there was free health care?

Question by Ines R: What would happen to pending hospital bills if there was free health care?
Say you owe a hospital bill, and some day free health care kicks in, would the debt be forfeit?

If so, would there not be potential for abuse for people who can pay the bill? And if not how does this solve poor/uninsured people’s problem if they still have debt they can’t pay?

There is NO SUCH THING as free health care. Who pays for that? That’s right, the tax payer. I wouldn’t be able to afford the tax of socialized medicine and you probably wouldn’t either. Terrible idea. Work your @$ $ off and get coverage, I do.
