My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Mississippi
The father of 2 children lives in Illinois and provides health insurance for his children who live in Mississippi with their mother. She, of course, takes them to the doctor in Mississippi and signs for their medical care. The mother does not pay the balance on the medical bills, in some cases no one has even made sure that the insurance company has been properly billed and paid their portion of the medical bills. Some of the claims are now several years old, too old to be submitted to the insurance company and now the medical office is harrasing the father for payment and has sent him to collections. If he did not sign for their medical care and was not included in the billing process is he legally responsible for these bills?
