For the past week or so, I've been reading up on ways to deal with a CA that recently showed up on my credit report. I stumbled upon Why Chat's HIPAA program, read through it, and while it's quite clear, I just want to make sure it is the right thing for me. I'd also like to use it to ask potential follow up questions along the process.
It showed up on my credit report June 28th, with a Date of First Delinquency of February 20th, 2017. At the moment, it only shows up on Equifax and Experian. It's from a hospital visit in California, and I am from and currently live in Arizona, and while I did have medicaid at the time, I was told that it would probably not cover it, but they'd let me go through with it anyway.
I started to get bills from the Riverside County Medical department, but I initially ignored them, as I was an unemployed college student, and my mom advised me it wouldn't matter anyway; The bill was for $991. I'm now 23, and have been working hard on my credit score, this is the only blemish on my record, and I would love to get rid of it completely.
I have a few old addresses on my credit report, but they're all from years before this account, and I've lived at my current address for around 11 years now. Do I still have to go through the deletion process for those other addresses? Other than that, I'm thinking my first step would be to fill out and send the "Initial HIPAA Dispute Letter" to the two CRAs that show the collection, is this correct?
Thanks in advance for any help!

I'm a newbie and after reading all the newbie forums I hope I'm doing this right. This is my first post.
I just received a Notice of Intention To File An IRS 1099 -C Form from a CA - Offices of Taylor and Associates.
The notice says that they are the legal owners of the account referenced in the box below. The box includes the OC name (Bank of America), and account #, the CA name, charge-off balance $1719.21, Interest $2751.68, Total amount owed $4470.89, charge-off date 3/3/2004, and client claim number.
Then the CA offers me two settlement options lower than what would be paid to the IRS. It's a one-time offer and apparently their last attempt (first I received) to settle this account before submitting the 1099-C to the IRS. I can make a one time payment of $670.63 or 6 monthly payments of $140.43. If no settlement is agreeable I am to detach the form below (1099-C form) and file it with my 2020 taxes.
Some interesting facts about the notice:
My first name used is a variation of my legal name but not my legal name.
My last name used is my maiden name and I was married in 2004 (at the time this was apparently C/O).
I pulled my credit reports and this does not show on any report. I don't even remember having a BOA account in 2004.
So do I send a DV (CRRR of course)? I'm sorry if this is too long.
In 2016 and parts of 2017, I've had a few credit cards go into collections.
1. Credit Card from a bank is about $20,000.00
2. Credit Card from a store is about $5000.00
3. Credit Card from a bank is about $5000.00
4. Credit Card from a bank is about $3000.00
At the time I was not working and did not know about negotiating/settling .
I am now working, making about a small $33K a year.
Should I pay off this debt? Do I call the collection agency's and pay it off? What's the best route to take?
