Consumer Complaint: First, this company ( state Collection ) is reporting multiple amounts on my credit report from the SAME medical office. XXXX XXXX XXXX is the original creditor. I have been paying them XXXX small amounts and filed for financial assistance in XXXX, and again in XXXX. NEVER heard back. The next thing you know, I see that State collection has me reported for the following amounts on my credit reports. – {$970.00} – {$610.00} – {$430.00} – {$200.00} – {$180.00} – {$150.00} – {$110.00} – {$86.00} – {$70.00} What XXXX does is they bill you one large amount on one bill. As you pay it down they apply the money to the MOST RECENT date of service then they charge off each date of service separately to make it more of a hit on your insurance. I applied for financial assistance. I am on XXXX. I am struggling. I do not need this from either State Collections or XXXX. Please investigate this as this is how they operate. I do not agree with these dollar amounts. I ased State Collection for a DETAILED statement when I got a letter from them as I did not agree with it. No response at all. Now it is all over my credit report on 9 different lines! This needs to be removed off of my credit reports and XXXX needs to respond to my financial assistance request. I am attaching a debt validation letter mailed to statewide collections on XXXX/XXXX/XXXX
