You could try sending a GW to them.

GW would probably be the only way since your "leverage" is gone because they are paid. There is also some talk of the HIPPA process but I have not personally used/read up on it. I have one medical collection for $49 and can't for the life of me reach the source.

IME with medical CA's, I was able to remove mine by a simple phone call and the others by sending GW letters.
