Great minds think alike.
Apparently, so do busyba and I.
By the way, to revise my original post on this: Just because the hospital in the New Mexico case billed the victim doesn't mean they had the right to do so, given the lack of patient consent (not to mention the lack of legal authority on the part of the police to authorize the medical procedures). I would think the same would apply in mental health cases in which the patient received "treatment" without the consent of a legal guardian. I don't remember if a member of Carrie's family gave consent or not. I'm assuming no one else (certainly not anyone of her CIA colleagues) would have such authority.
Conversely, just because a hospital has no legal right to bill someone, that doesn't mean they won't.
It depends on the state. In a quick Googling, for example, California picks up the tab on an adjudicated hold, while Minnesota bills the patient, for example.
