Medicredit reporting on my credit report after I paid the OC

I had 4 small balances at a previous doctors office from 2011. I pulled my CR and saw that Medicredit was collecting on these 4 items. I called the doctor's office and paid them immediately on 10/24/2011. The problem is now that Medicredit is reporting this as a paid collection. I would like to get them to remove it entirely from my CR. ANy thoughts on what to do here to successfully get this removed? I never even spoke with MC or had any type of relationship with them. Thanks for your help! Trying to improve my credit score by 50 points this year!!!!

Unfortunately, if the bills were paid after they (CA) started reporting this as a collection, shy of GW letters, not much you can do. The only thing the CA is required to do is update it as paid.

 

try sending them a GW letter. After all, you have nothing to lose by going that route.
