Limitation on Medical Bills that were not turned into Insurance at the time incured.

My husband was in an automobile accident in January 2010. We just received a medical bill from the company that read the xray...it was NOT turned into our insurance at the time (that insurance would have paid). Instead it was turned into our current insurance, who didn't pay because we weren't covered by them at the time. Are we required to pay this bill?

Yes, you are obligated to pay the bill despite the fact that you did not receive it on a timely basis. If I were you, I would contact your former insurance company to find out if it will pay the bill given that your husband incurred the expense back when you were covered by that company. If it won't you may be out of luck.
