My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Pennsylvania
My wife had surgery in June of 2005 which was billed to insurance. Initially, the insurance claim denied- said not submitted correctly. First bill from hospital, January 2006. We contacted & they resubmitted claim. 2nd bill came February - not paid (same as January), insurance paid March 1st. We received no other bills or statements from the hospital. In July of 2008 we received a bill for a balance owed on the 2005 surgery. Contacting the billing department, they admitted first bill since payment because we had a credit balance. They reviewed all accounts with a credit balance & said our bill was over adjusted, pay within 5 days. What is my responsibility at this point since they accepted payment and did not respond/bill for over 2 years 4 months?They never send anything after you pay a bill - no statement with payment received if it is paid in full.
