I got a bill for an emergency room visit for one of my kids. It was the weekend and that was where the insurance told us to go. Luckily no stitches needed. Fast forward 7 months and I get a bill for over $700. On the bill it says that they charged the health insurance company but they did so only last month, over 6 months after the incident. The decline says "time limit expired". The bill would have been covered in full, less the already paid copay, had it been filed on time.
So am I liable for paying this bill since the Doctor's office messed up by not charging in time?
