If I just received a medical bill for a date of service over 2 years ago and was never previously billed for this, can the creditor wait this long before asking for payment?

Question Details: I already contacted them to see if it was sent in error. However, I was told to pay it or they'd turn it over to collections. I told them I was not acknowledging I owed them anything and would have to look into it. I don't even have the same insurance anymore. Has it been too long for them to try to bill for something they never billed for at the time it occurred?
