Alleged Medical Debt
Posted 25 September 2005 - 01:44 PM
I cannot find any legal link between the first CA (Innovative) and this second. No common officers, addresses, phone numbers, no link found in my state of the home states listed for both. Moreover, I have received no collection notice from the agency listed as "Literary Management." This all seems odd.
Anyone heard of such an organization or practice?
Advice would be greatly appreciated.

Why would you, if you have any doubts about whether or not the amounts are owed, offer to make an "amicable agreement" with them???????
You may find a better response to your second question regarding the CA by asking that part on the main credit forum.

My offer was based on the small amount of the claim and my desire to avoid the CRA consequences. My offer stipulated that they would not report, ever and if they had already reported, that this would be promptly removed. I also stipulated that any settlement was not an admission of obligation that, I was only motivated to settle this to avoid the long and recalcitrant process of CRA disputes.
Recently, I have sent a "nice" letter to the O.C., a physician where I pointed out that this entire matter was silly and that we could both arrive at a reasonable resolution. I then pointed out every violation of the FCRA, FDCPA, and Fair Billing Act as well as several Tennessee and Georgia statues that have been violated and reminded him that he is culpable for the violations made by both third parties. I pointed out that having my medical information out there with so many unnecessary people made me vulnerable and very anxious about my privacy. Notwithstanding you historical comment about how CRAs automatically encrypt medical trade lines, I donít see anything on my TRU report that provides for this protection. Moreover, I have a taped conversation with a supervisor at TRU where I specifically inquire about this trade line. I asked her if I was seeing the trade line just as anyone pulling my credit report would see it, including the name of this physician. She repeatedly confirmed that I was indeed seeing the same information that anyone pulling my CR would see. .
I gave him until November 01 to respond and then I promised to pursue action. I am currently crafting a letter to the Tennessee Collection Board, which has the authority to intervene and order federal penalties for violations of state and federal statues. I will also send this to the FTC, if it comes to this conclusion.
I believe I have made a great case for multiple FCRA violations, licensing violations and willful disregard for HIPPA laws.

I also suggest you opt out, if you have not already done so, to avoid any further poisoning of your reports.
