Without notification or due date

Just received a letter for a collection agency because we didn't pay the bill. For the past few months we have been disputing the care, but have still received a bill without a due date. We decided not to pay until we received a response from our email that we sent them. Their response was to send the bill over to the local collection agency without letting us know. Is this legal?

Yes, I am afraid it is legal. No law requires a medical provider to notify you before it sends a debt that is past due to a collection agency. And typically, if there is no due date on a bill, it's assumed that you must pay it within 30 days.
