Are you resposible for a medical bill over 8 years old?
I received a called from a collector regarding an 8 year-old medical bill, which I wasn't aware about to begin with, since my insurence should have covered it at the time. The collector became increasingly frustrated when I told him that I would like to check the correctness of the bill with Fire Department( which is the ordiginal owner of the bill).
They are sort of threatening me that this will go on my credit report, which is surprising to me since this did not effect my credit report in 8 years(date of bill is 11/30/2003).
Can I refuse to pay and can they truely put this on my credit report?
