(Salinas, CA, USA)
We are residents of CA. 3 years ago, my daughter saw an orthodontist in New York (where she attends school) for a checkup after having her wisdom teeth removed by our dentist in CA. We are having 2 problems:
1. The NY orthodontist failed to submit his bill to our insurance company for a year, and so our insurance refused to pay the bill.
2. The orthodontist sent the bill to a collection agency who is contacting my daughter for payment, not me, and stating that it is effecting HER credit, not mine.

I am going to run the first question by one of the medical billing experts we consult. As for the second question - how old is your daughter?
