From a medical provider POV, you are ultimately responsible for your medical bills. You have the contract with the health insurance company, not the provider. Most offices bill your insurance as a courtesy, knowing they will take a writeoff. If the insurance did not pay, there was a reason given on your EOB, and it is your responsibility to find out why. Most offices are more than willing to take payments, collections is a last resort.
