Good afternoon. Thank you for the additional information.
The Nebraska statute of limitations for written contracts is 5 years and 4 years for oral contracts. So, a bill given for medical services provided the year before is well within the limitations period, even if it is a poor business practice. Unless you have another defense, you would be liable for the bill.
I realize this is probably not the answer you were hoping to receive. Also, please remember that this is not necessarily a moral judgement on my part. As a professional, however, I am sometimes placed in the position of having to deliver news which is not favorable to a customer's legal position, but accurately reflects their position under the law. I hate it, but it happens and I only ask that you not penalize me with a bad or poor rating for having to deliver less than favorable news.
