whychat guide-mailing translation

Recommended Posts

After lurking in the shadows for a little while now, I decided I wanted to try why chat's guidebook on medical collections but felt really noobish once I didnt understand how to appropriately send priority mail. 

 

It says send a letter to the CRA with the proof of delivery number. Whats the delivery number? Is it on the forms Im getting from the post office?

 

Also, on the priority mail instructions, It says to affix the copy to the top of the hard copy of the letter. Does that mean staple it on the top so I dont lose it?

 

I promise you I am not as noobish as I seem. I guess I am kind of nervous?

 

Thanks

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!

Why Chat will correct me if I am wrong.  But I think Why Chat means for you to send certified mail. 

 

The form looks like this: hcsVTIj.png

Thank you MarvBear but NO NO NO!!

The "delivery # is on the mailing label and a tear off strip duplicates the #)

Priority mail is how all letters to CRAs and CAs should be sent.

https://store.usps.com/store/product/shipping-supplies/priority-mail-flat-rate-envelope-ep14f-P_EP_14_F

(there is also a smaller envelope 

https://store.usps.com/store/product/shipping-supplies/priority-mail-small-flat-rate-envelope-ep14b-P_EP_14_B

On the smaller envelope you will need to fold over a small part of the label to make it fit

You can get the envelopes delivered to you and buy the priority mail label on line or get the labels (pack of 50) from the PO

The labels have a detachable section just like the certified mail label does and I suggest you staple THAT strip to your hard copy of the letter you are sending. 

 

You can look up the delivery info on line and print out the proof of delivery

 

Priority mail does NOT require a signature for delivery so your mail will not be routed to a different department at the CRAs and it WILL be forwarded if the CA has moved

      "A California law that took effect Jan. 1 aims to protect consumers from such enormous bills for out-of-network air ambulance services. The measure limits what consumers owe if they’re transported by an air ambulance that’s not part of their insurance network to the amount that they’d be charged if they used an in-network provider. The health plan and the air ambulance provider must then work out payment between themselves.
      But the new law won’t protect consumers like Hoechlin, whose health plan isn’t regulated by the state. Matt’s employer pays its workers’ medical claims directly rather than buying state-regulated insurance, a common arrangement called “self-funding.” Self-funded plans are regulated by the federal government and generally not subject to state health insurance laws.
      In this regard, the new air ambulance law is like laws in California and other states that protect consumers from surprise medical bills: They don’t apply to residents in federally regulated health plans. Those plans cover about two-thirds of people who get insurance through their jobs nationwide." ~ California Healthcare
       
      With an EPO (self funded) insurance plan, balance billing may result for less extravagant but routine procedures such as anesthesiologists, lab work, etc. Even if you are referred to a in-network facility. It happens when say, the anesthesiologist who is out of network, is working in the in-network facility and the EPO doesn't cover the charges. The patient is billed separately and on the hook for the full amount of the out of network physician. HMO's are protected from balance billing CA.

      Basically, below are the baddies on my reports. I know I can't do much for the lates, but I'm hoping I can work on the other ones. I’ve been lurking and researching, but not sure what to start with. Any help is appreciated.
       
      Equifax
       
      Lates:   Auto loan – 10x in past 2 yrs.
                  8 Navient Accounts – 7x in past 2yrs. (although was in forbearance)
                  2 Utah Higher Edu Accounts – 6x in past 2 yrs. (must verify if was in forbearance or deferment)
                  1 ACS Group Account – Sold in 2016, shows as closed and current status of 120 days past due.
       
      Charge Offs:    Cap One #1 = $1850 from Apr 2020, but shows as open and 120+ past due
                              UM Old Balance from 2012 – $8k
       
       Experian
       
      Lates:   Auto loan – 14x in past 2 yrs. Status says: Now paying/was a charge-off
                  8 Navient Accounts – 7x in past 2yrs. (although was in forbearance)
                  2 Utah Higher Edu Accounts – 6x in past 2 yrs. (must verify if was in forbearance or deferment)
                  1 ACS Group Account – Sold in 2016, shows as closed and current status of 120 days past due.
       
      Charge Offs:    Cap One #1 = $1850 from Apr 2020
                              Cap One #2 = $613 from Oct 2019
       
      Trans Union
       
      Lates:   Auto loan – 14x in past 2 yrs. (says C/O for Oct 2018)
                  8 Navient Accounts – 7x in past 2yrs. (although was in forbearance)
                  2 Utah Higher Edu Accounts – 6x in past 2 yrs. (must verify if was in forbearance or deferment)
                  1 ACS Group Account – Sold in 2016, shows as closed and current status of 120 days past due.
       
      Charge Offs:    Cap One #1 = $1850 from Apr 2020
                              Cap One #2 = $636 from Oct 2019
       
      Collections:     IC Systems (Charter Communications) = $167
       
       Auto loan: It was almost a repo. I paid past due the same day they set it out to be towed. I was 3 months behind. Why are they saying it was a charge off? What can I do?
      Student loans: I was in forbearance, but Navient says they no longer change credit reports. They sent me letter confirming forbearance for those months.
      Charge Offs: Since they are within past year, should I try to settle, pay in full, or wait a while?

      I have an AMEX charge off from 2017 its paid but I want it off my reports I've called them but the guy on the phone just kept saying nope can't take it off even if paid.
      I've even tried disputing them because they were reporting the wrong info but they just update with the right info. 
       
      I was able to get approved for a different AMEx card two months ago so I know I'm not blacklisted 
       
      I was wondering has anyone had any luck with something like this.

      I finally decided to attack my credit issue rather than pretend they don't exist. Here is the situation
       
      Here is my CreditKarma information...
       
      TransUnion and Equifax (both show the same items
      Credit Cards $0
      I have a $500 secured Discover IT card that I used for YouTube TV payment and that is it. Between 10% and 30% utilization opened May 2020.
      My mother added me as an authorized user to her Costco Capital One card that has perfect payment history, 8 years open and a $15,000 limit.
       
      Collections $5,317
      Armada Corp
      Total Accounts 6 (medical) Oldest age of account 2019
      $3,193 
       
      Puget Sound Collections 
      Total Accounts 2 (medical) Oldest age of account 2019
      $1,814
       
      Solverity
      Total Accounts 1 (medical) Oldest age of account 2019
      $310
       
       
      Student Loans
      $0
      Accounts Were Garnished from my paycheck and paid
      Closed Accounts 4

      US Department of Education (Closed) Opened 09/2012
      US Department of Education (Closed) Opened 09/2012
       
      I have sent debt validation letters to all three credit bureaus and this is what was verified. Where do I go from here. I was added as an authorized user to my mothers credit card (Capital One Costco) about a month ago. I hope this helps my score improve but it hasn't reported yet. I saw a 25+ point boost from my secured discover card but it hasn't helped since then. Can anyone offer some guidance as to a path for a better credit score? 
       
      Thanks,
      BFee
