Debt collection

Hello,

About a week ago I received a phone call from a collector regarding a doctors bill from Dec. 2014.

After contacting the doctors billing company I found out that they:

1. Billed my secondary insurance first, which denied the bill.

2. Have a wrong address.

For almost 2 years they kept sending letters to that wrong address.

The idiots never crossed their mind to call me on the phone.

After our conversation they transferred my case to the management for reevaluation.

I asked them to call the collectors and tell them to stop until the reevaluation goes on but they didn't do that . . . I received an validation letter dated 8-19-2016

Any advice how to handle this??

Thanks, Yoji

For now, send a dispute letter to the collector within the 30 day period. https://www.ftc.gov/enforcement/rules/rulemaking-regulatory-reform-proceedings/fair-debt-collection-practices-act-text#809

Get back with the billing company to see the status. This sounds like an issue where the wrong insurance company was billed? Do you have all the correct insurance info for them to process this?

Hi,

The billing company just dragging me around and I almost missed the 30 day.

I sent today this letter and I'll appreciate your opinion . . .

Mr. Suhr and Mrs Gabel:

This letter is in regards to account 860061, which your company

contacted me about on 12.19.2016.

Please note that I dispute this account in it's entirety. 
It is your alleged clients’ negligence which resulted in this account being sent to your company; 
1. They billed my secondary insurance first.
2. They kept sending me letters to a wrong address.
3. You didn’t notify me about my rights
as such, you are hereby instructed to cease collection efforts immediately.

If I ever hear from your company again, I will add you, and your company,

to the lawsuit that I am preparing to file against your client for their negligence.

Sincerely

bla, bla

Now I have to wait and see if they will sue me . . .
