I just had success in getting a collection removed using the HIPAA process. It's not hard info to find if you just google "HIPAA Process". Should be one of the first hits.
An important note: the process is meant for paying the original creditor, NOT the collection agency. If you've already paid the collection agency, it may or may not work.

Can someone please send me the message on how to remove paid medical collections from your credit reports. I have tried disputing, contacting them and even wrote a letter.........nothing has worked in getting them deleted. Please help!!!!

I paid a delinquent bill nearly 9 months ago and am also looking to initiate this process. Can someone PM me with the process steps as well?
In addition - I (unfortunately) found out that my credit score was an issue by being denied for a commercial bank mortgage loan with an accepted home purchase offer in-hand. I have to imagine that this is not a terribly infrequent issue for people. Does anyone know of any way to expedite steps within the process?
Why are the CA and original creditors not automatically in violation (subject to litigation) if the item is not removed after payment is made?
