CA still showing balance for paid medical

I recently paid off a couple of medical bills directly with the OC. The checks were cashed within 2 days of me mailing them, so I know they accepted them without dispute. However, the CA still shows them as having a balance due. I only know this because one of them updated and alerted the credit monitoring. What should I do about these and should I contact the CA?


Also, I have 2 more to pay. Should I PFD those 2? They are both at $100 each. 

Starting Score: 546
Current Score: EQ 672 TU 682 EX 638
Goal Score: 700

Re: CA still showing balance for paid medical

Sounds like they haven't updated the balance(s) yet. give it more time, couple weeks or so.

Re: CA still showing balance for paid medical

I would contact the OC and ask them to remove the TL's being that they cashed the checks and the amount is STILL showing. I hope you have a bank statement or your carbon copies in case they want to play dumb!


And yes, try PFD's with the others but get the agreement in WRITTING before paying a dime!
