I have a $141 unpaid collection. The medical service was provided by Doctors on Duty. I assumed that my medical insurance had covered the cost, however I was unaware that I had to get a referral by my school (university insurance). The account is still currently unpaid, however I'd like to pay it in full. With accrued interest the total comes out to $179.
If I pay the collection agency in full, would I be able to go through the HIPAA proces so that the derog is removed?

Do not under any circumstances deal with the collection agency. Check your PM and I have sent you the link to the Hippa Process. If you need anything else let me know.
