I DV'd all of my HIPAA claims with EX, but didn't send pre hipaa letters to the other CRAs. I have since sent DV letters to the CAs since EX verified.
Do I need to dispute with other CRAs first and start HIPAA process from scratch, or can I just start at step two with them, or continue through the process with EX and then copy and send the results to the other CRAs?

Did you send Med DV letters or just DV letters, and when? Are these collections paid or unpaid? If unpaid, can you PIF? How old are they? In the meantime, before you do anything, first do the following:
3.) Update personal info on your credit reports, having former addresses deleted will be beneficial.

I had done an online dispute with EX, but then sent the Pre Hipaa after I read the process carefully. That was about three weeks ago. I sent med dv letters cmrrr to the CAs last week, and they received them already. I have copies of the RR. The collections are from 1-3 years old, and are small amounts. One of them was paid, two others unpaid, which I can PIF.
So, since I am going to send my follow up dispute letters to EX, should I just send step 2 letters to TU and EQ? Or do I need to have them verify with a pre-hipaa step 1 letter?

I think the point here is to make sure that any attempts at collection are valid, and they reach you. Often times, they'll use the last know address, and then you never get anything. I belieive this is a way to help keep them from "spamming" you with bogus collections.
