Default UK citizen with American healthcare debt

I am an English citizen back in the UK, with American healthcare debt, and would like to know my legal options with this bill.
Can they force me to pay in any way?

Default Re: UK citizen with American healthcare debt

I wish to inform you that US creditor may seek payment of debt from your assets in UK through UK Court. In this US creditor may seek US court order then seek its registration in UK. If a UK Court is satisfied that US Court order has been obtained in accordance with law then it may enforce money judgment. You may have the right to object any enforcement action against you.

They have to get a judgment in the US first then authenticate that in the UK, which is all quite a process. Not many creditors go to all the trouble unless the debt is quite large, and even then it still is not that easy to do.

In this regard the medical facility in US is required to obtain an order against you and they take action against you upon re-entry.

Required? Really?

That's ridiculous. They cannot be not forced to do anything.
