Yes, unfortunately you do. Unless the divorce decree says there is a timeline for it to be paid. She can even pay it and ask for reimbursement later on.

One thing you can do is contact the provider to see if they will agree to a lower amount. I do this frequently and they will often reduce by a certain percentage.

I'm sorry I don't have better news. One more suggestion is that if you were to seek a modification to the divorce decree, you could ask for a fixed process for when medical bills are sent to you. If you do not need further assistance, please accept and if you can rate the answer.
