Removing Medical Collections

I'm hoping you guys can help clarify the HIPPA letter process for me.  I have 7 medical collections all from CAs on my account.  Is it best to do the Pre-HIPPA letters or just DV all of them?  Does one work better than the other? 

 

Even after reading and reading I'm still confused.

Some have luck with HIPAA, some don't.   It is for paid collections to the OC.  Sometimes it works with the CA, sometimes not.

 

Do you know if the OC still owns the debt?  If they do ask them if you pay them would they pull back the account from the CA.

Re: Removing Medical Collections

I don't know if they do or not.  Should I call the OC and ask them?

 

I just called one of the hospitals who sent it off to CA and they  have no idea if it was sold or assigned.  She asked someone else and they had no idea.  Guess no one ever asks!
