Contract simulation

Myron, 21, does not have medical insurance. He was taken to the emergency room in an unconscious state. The ER physicians determined that he needed a pacemaker surgically implanted in order to save his life. A cardiac surgeon successfully performed the surgery.

One month later, Myron received a bill for $30,000. He refused to pay the bill. Myron argued that there was no enforceable contract because of UCC Statute of Frauds.

3. Does the UCC apply to this transaction?
4. Does the Statute of Frauds bar enforcement?
5. Is there an implied contract under common law?
