Pros are you don't have toi pay the excessive bill.  The cons may be a derogatory remark on your credit for ten years.  But, due to such medical costs, some have filed "medical bankruptcy" to get rid of just the medical debt while continuing to pay on their other accounts.  Find an attorney whoi specializes in bankruptcy and also offers a free initial consult, then ask them, and pay close attention to what you are told.
