Trevor...You can successfully contest any obligation to pay this bill. The basis for contesting this is that it would have been covered by insurance, but because of the creditor's negligence in not submitting it until 2 years later, insurance will not now pay the bill. Therefore, it's the creditor's negligence that has caused the problem and thus it's the creditor who bears responsibility.
