Hello: My name is ***** ***** I am an attorney. If the hospital did not file the claim, then you would file it with your insurance company. So, although you are responsible to pay the bill, you also have insurance and the insurer will cover your bill pursuant to your plan.

If you have further questions, just let me know.
