Consumer Complaint: My father XXXX XXXX XXXX was a patient at XXXX XXXX XXXX Pa. He was transferred from XXXX XXXX to this facility. I ( XXXX XXXX ) am the only family member left to sign him into XXXX. All I did was sign him in and sign him out. I was very clear that I was not responsible for any bills. He has XXXX and XXXX XXXX. I recently received bills and a notice that I was being sent to a collection agency for his medical bills. I called XXXX and questioned why I was receiving any bills. I wanted to know why the bill existed in the first place. He has been a patient there at least 2 times before. They told me that his XXXX XXXX was no longer valid. His payments to XXXX XXXX were electronically deposited so I do n’t know why that is the case. I want XXXX to send the bills to the patient and not me. I was not a patient
