Question for whychat on a medical collection

Recommended Posts

I have been following since last fall and used whychat methods on several collections. Was successful in sending a $100 payment to a hospital HIPAA director for deposit only to their account and they had the CA delete the account. Also sent your repossession letter for a car equity loan I had they had added a bunch of fees and they removed. Fantastic. 

The one problem I still have is with an original $1,787 bill with Sarasota Memorial Hospital.  Care was from September of 2016. I had a heart attack and total was over $50,000 that insurance paid. Was never aware of this $1,787 until I applied for credit a year ago and saw a collection from State Collection Service for this. 

I opted out and deleted old addresses. 

I sent the original HIPAA letter to all 3 agencies. TransUnion immediately deleted. Equifax and Experian verified saying it was a legitimate debt. 

Last month I sent the Medical Dispute validation letter to State Collection Service and the follow up dispute letter to Equifax and Experian. 

I received a letter from Experian stating the information I disputed has been verified as accurate. No other information given. 

From Equifax they simply updated the tradeline saying collection reported April 2020 and consumer disputes this account information. 

I heard nothing from State Collection Service and no information on the account. 

What can I do from here? 

Thanks for your information.

Welcome to Creditboards!

We hope that you find what you're looking for here.

Some helpful tips:

  • Your post may not get a reply right away. Don't be discouraged, this is a very busy board. If it falls off of the first page, feel free to reply to your post yourself, with the word *bump* in the text. This will *bump* your post back up to the top of the board.
  • If you haven't yet, take a peek at out Newbies Section. Everything that you need to know is in that forum, for the most part. It's a lot of reading, we know, but this credit stuff can have a steep learning curve. In no time, you'll be posting like the pros!
  • If you find that someone is discourteous to you, use the REPORT button at the top right of every post - that will ensure that a moderator or admin looks at the post and decides if it is against the TOS.
  • Off -topic posts should go in the General Forum.


Again, welcome to the CreditBoards family!
