Help! Medical Debt

Hi. I was on this board about 2 months ago and received help with a medical debt on my credit report. With the help of board members, I was able to get it removed from my credit report. Today I receive a letter from the same debt collector, NCC, about the debt that was removed asking me to pay it. What do I do?

 

 

I checked my credit reports and  the debt does not appear there.

Bump for others...

 

I know zilch on medical debt, but I though you had to pay it so as to follow the HIPAA process. Was it paid?

Re: Help! Medical Debt

When you got it removed who did you go through? The OC or NCC?
Was it paid previously?

Re: Help! Medical Debt

When I got it removed I did it through the HIPAA process. The very first time that it appeared on my CR I never received a formal letter from NCC. It was just there. Then it was removed. I thought that was it and today I receive a letter from them stating that I owe money.
