It's possible for a collection agency to put a lien on your home if the medical bills are huge.

But the collection agency or original creditor would have to take you to court and win a lawsuit against you for the debt and the judge would have to give the creditor or collection agency permission to seize your house.

It's rare but I've heard of a few peoples homes getting seized before for unpaid medical bills.
