Mischa Barton -- HUGE Loss In War With Nurses

4/24/2011 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Health care doesn't come cheap, especially for Mischa Barton, who was just ordered to pay a private nursing company more than $95k for services rendered back in 2009.

It's unclear why Barton was using Doctor's Choice Nursing ... but the company claims the former star of "The O.C." ran up a bill for $89,930.57 -- and never paid up.

The company sued for the cash -- plus interest -- and earlier this month, a judge signed off on a default judgment in favor of DCN because Mischa was a no-show on the court date.

A rep for Mischa tells us, "This is the first we've heard of it."

Wow...if you're a drug addict and you hire round the clock care to help you get clean...wouldn't it be wise to pay the Mo Fo's ?

She always looked a tad "Peakid" dark circles under the eyes, goofy conversations...

So if you sue a 'celebrity' for whatever reason and they don't hear about it/show up in court, they have to pay you regardless? God bless America! lol I'm gonna sue every f*cker I can find!

*** She has this bill because she was in rehab, folks - true - for her drug use and eating disorder. ***

She is British and should have taken advantage of the European health care system.
But of course it's hard to reason with someone when they are high.

Did she lose her L.A. house?
There was an article a while back that said her credit cards were declined at a food market.

Wasn't she treated for some sort of mental illness issues? Perhaps she was suicidal?

Her healthcare insurer probably denied the claim. Happens all the time. It goes to collections and then a court judgement is issued to screw up your credit. Don't get sick, health thy self.

Good luck trying to collect. Most judgements aren't worth the paper they are printed on.

This must have been for her sober companion that she had to have in order to continue working on that TV show about models that got cancelled. Health insurance is not going to pay for you to have a 24 hour companion that makes sure you don't drink or do drugs.

And to get a default judgment - what a dope. She should have showed up in court. Her lawyers must be pissed. Yikes, she's got to pay them too!

Don't know anything about this chick other than the fact that she was on a reality show. Leave this chick off this site. She has no redeeming values whatsoever.

If she is British, then deport her. We have enough fame whores here as it is.
