If HIPPA is not a valid means of disputing a medical collection that has been PIF, what is?


There is no such thing as a "valid" dispute of a medical collection that has been paid in full. What is the dispute? That you PIF and you claim the false HIPAA? Invalid dispute...

Re: Outlined HIPAA Process?

I see... thank you.  It was supposed to be a PFD and I did this BEFORE I had ever even stumbled onto the myFico website and community (I was a truecredit.com user) and put my good faith that they would since they agreed verbally they would.  My mistake.  Before I realized that the CA  could legally do this, I disputed w/ EX and they validated and updated to a paid status, but when they did, it took off the estimated month/year that it would drop from my CBR.  Does this mean it will take longer to fall off now?  Looks like I'll be playing the waiting game...

HIPAA only works if you've paid the OC not the CA. If you decided to pay the CA then you should've offered a PFD. If you did offer and they 'verbally' agreed to and haven't removed it then your only option is to GW the CA for removal. You can't dispute a PAID medical collection (to the CA) with the CRAs and expect to be removed. That's not how the HIPAA process works.

Hi 2NE1,  That was true, but now I believe there's is a way the HIPAA process works for paid CA. I truly dont totally understand, how the HIPAA process works.

So 2NE1, I'll send to a PM so we can try to figure this out,OK?

Since I don't understand the HIPAA process completely, I would like to see what 2NE1 think first.

 2NE1 understands it better then I do, I would like to get his/her thoughts about this first.

I know that's not what you wanted to hear,but I just don't want to give out the wrong info.

I would just like to do, some research about this first.

Re: Outlined HIPAA Process?

Can you please send that to me as well. I dont know how Hippa works and can medical collections that were included in a bankruptcy be removed? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

From my understanding "after you have paid the OC in FULL and if the CA still does not remove/delete your medical bill off your report" you send that special alternate medical DV letter to the CA. Sometimes once you pay the OC, the CA will reflect it as "Paid" on their end and make it look like you paid the CA instead.
