HIPAA medical collection

Hello,

 

I've searched but am unable to find the thread detailing the HIPAA process. Can anyone PM or post the link?

 

Thanks.

Oh, no questions about it really.  I'm just trying to get an understanding and learn the steps of the process.  I guess I'll try googling.

 

Thanks.

Re: HIPAA medical collection

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?

 

Thanks.

Allenalexander,

 

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.

Re: HIPAA medical collection

The first step in the process is to opt-out with the CRAs.  IMO everyone should opt-out even if the collection is not medical. This way the CRAs can not farm out your info.
