I recently found out i was sent to a collection agency (this is 5/31/2012) for a medical bill that was never paid as a result of a medical provider never being paid and the date of service was 1/3/2007 ! I paid the bill in full last week after never even knowing it existed. Isn't there some type of drop dead date for a provider to bill a patient. Also i have both blue shield and medicare, the cost to be would have been nothing. This took place in a hospital that had my medical insurance information.
