Consumer Complaint: Upon reviewing my credit report a few months ago i seen multiple accounts listed under MEDICAL. Under hippa my medical information is protected. Why does a third party have my medicam information? Where ‘s the medical release form? This is humiliating and embarrassing that a third party collection agency can have access to MY medical records. I know for a fact i did not give ANY provider permission to share my medical information. commonwealth NEEDS to remove ALL accounts on my credit report and send these accounts back to the original creditors. In addition i will be filing lawsuits against these creditors for violating my medical rights.
