I just received a call from a collection agency for the amount that was applied toward my deductible...162.33. When I had this done at the hospital, the hospital didn't forward the correct address to the radiology office. So I never received the bill. Ireceived a call in April about it. I told the agency that I hadn't received the bill. They refused to send me a copy of the bill, stating that I had my explanation of benefits. They wouldn't even tell me how to contact the radiology office. So I tracked them down,, corrected the address and requested a copy of the bill. I tried to set up payment arrangements with them and they refused! They said that the least they could take was $100! I don't have that! So I called the radiology office and they said that there is nothing they can do! I plan on making payment of $20 a month and if they accept them, great, if not, than oh well. I tried. And they had better not put it on my credit report! I am working really hard to get that cleaned up! UGGGHHHH!!! I know collection agency's deal with deadbeats, but I try not to be one of them! And they can look at it and see the circumstances. It just drives me crazy!
