I've been fighting with my insurance company to pay a medical bill, and they ultimately refused to pay the entire claim. As I was slugging it out with the Insurance b*st*rds, the Doctor sent my unpaid balance to a CA, who just sent me a dunning letter... in which they've tacked on 15% interest to the final total.
Can they do this?
I'm sending a DV letter to buy some time to get the money together, now that I now that my Insurance Rapists won't couogh up the money (and I work at an insurance company, so you would thnk the plan would be quality, it's not).
Are there regulations under HIPAA that can help me with this?
