If you do not recall having any medical treatment during the time presented, file disputes with the credit bureaus reporting the bills.  If the bills are confirmed as legitimate, then you can possibly work out a payment agreement or settlement with the hospital/provider.  Many have 'slliding scale' finance arrangements.  Check these things out when you are financially 'embarrassed'.  Pride is one thing we should all avoid because it gets us into the biggest trouble.
