You can try, but if it works or not is another story. There have been many people in your situation where they never received a bill and ended up with a collections and from what I understand, this is not grounds to get a collection removed. If I were you, I would try though. Keep in mind that disputing will cause an update if the account is not removed and this would cause some short term damage to your scores.
