I have 3 medical collections reporting: $320, $656 and $636. When the bills were incurred in 2016, I was uninsured and applied for charity assistance through the hospital. The bill was written off completely with $0 balance.
At the time, I thought it covered all related charges but these collections are for the radiologist, anesthesiologist and ER physician at the hospital. I contacted each of the providers about it and they told me today that they would also do a charity write off if I can prove the hospital did. No problem; the hospital is sending me proof by snail mail.
Once those balances are applied to charity and written off, will Credit Control delete the collections from my credit report or do I need to do something different?
If those providers participate in Hospital's charity program, they should recall collections after receiving a proof you were granted charity care at 100%. At my place of employment, we're participating in similar program, and have to accept write offs when charity is granted.
