how long do medical bills stay on your credit?

No, that is not allowed and it is illegal. If they did this, contact a consumer law attorney in your state and sue them. Many consumer law attorneys will work on contingency, so you don't have to pay anything. Keep records of everything and contact a consumer law attorney right away as time is important in these matters.
