Can you confirm that Medical treatment bills are considered " Goods or Services"
I understand that a "signed Promissory note" has a SOL of 6 years in Colorado. Does "typical" admittance forms or doctor office forms consitute a promissory note and would that entend the SOL to 6 years. Does this apply for medical bills or is it limited to three years if they are considered "goods or services"?
You state that the SOL begins to run from the time that the debt was incurred. Is this the date that the services were provided? The collection firm/attorneys office stated that they had a 7 year SOL from the date they last received payment ( 6-18-2004). is that correct or are they providing me with false or misleading information? Are there different rules if a collection agent is involved?
