They can not take your home for that.
The worst they could do is put a lien on it.
Medical bills are a form of unsecured debt. This means your creditor, in this case a hospital or doctor's office, has no collateral to seize if you do not pay off the debt.
In most circumstances, your creditor cannot move to claim your assets such as a home or other piece of real property as a means of recouping your medical debt *****without an action by the court.*****

So yes, RR- if a judge decides they can take your home, then they most certainly can.
While that may not happen all that often, it not only DOES happen, but it CAN happen.
