    Default Medical Billing Statute of Limitations

    I live CA and wonder what the statue of limitations is for a hospital to bill me for services I received in 2003. There were several mix-ups on both the hospital & insurance co.'s side. I called the hospital numerous times during the next year and kept getting put off. They told me it was still in resolution and to wait for a bill. About a year ago my insurance co. informed me the bills had been resolved. I again contacted the hospital and was put off. Almost a year later, I have still never received a bill from the hospital. It's been 2 years! I'll be using this hospital again for the birth of another child in Dec '5 and and am concerned about getting hit with extremely large bills all at once! What do I do at this point?

    It is probably four years; a local lawyer, familiar with the facts and circumstances of your situation, could give you a definite answer.

    In all probability, though, the billing issues were resolved as your insurance company represented.

    Default Medical Billing Statute of Limitations

    I am fairly certain the hospital has been paid by the insurance company. It's my balance that is of concern. The hospital has never billed me for it, I've tried numerous times to inquire on my portion of the bill, and keep getting told it's being worked on. It seems that they've had an entire year to sort it out...I don't want this to go to collections, but feel like I've done everything I can to be responsible for my portion!
