Florida has a statute of limitations for contract or written instrument set at 5 years under F.S. 95.11. The limitations period begins from the date the payment was due and becomes delinquent. Typically this is 30 days after the debt is due. (95.051). Medical debt generally falls under the category of written contracts.
