9 year-old Medical Bill

It's surprising that your doctor's office never contacted you about the debt it says that you owe; however, the office is entitled to refuse you service if you owe it money. It has the right to set its own policies regarding patients who have not paid what they owe.

If you are not sure that you owe the money, call your doctor's office and ask for a copy of the bill. After you've reviewed the bill, if you do not think the debt is yours, write your doctor's office a letter and dispute the debt, explaining why you do not owe it. If it is yours, then I recommend you pay it if you want to see your doctor.
