I have a medical bill that was never submitted to insurance, it's now in collections for the amount of $1100 and insurance says it is too late to submit a claim. What are my options?
The hospital states it never received the insurance information, and insurance never received any claim.

That's awful. Have you spoken with the service provider? Generally, they just want to get paid and the process is much simpler without involving collections. Also, consult with your legal advisor.
Do you agree with the bill amount? If not, discuss this also.

It's not what you make, It's what you keep that determines your lifestyle
If you were not proactive when you were sent bills, this falls on you to pay. If the hospital did not contact you with this problem, it falls on them. Many hospitals under staff their accounting offices and they sometimes are very late to bill. If that is the case, you can politely argue that you are not responsible for their staffing and processing problems. Been there, done this and won this before.
Be polite, be calm, ask questions. If it's on the Hospital they will usually eat the bill.
