Issue: Written notification about debt
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I was completely unaware that there was even any medical debt in collections as i ‘ve never recieved anything from the XXXX XXXX XXXX saying that i owe anything to them, nor do i recall ever incruing any medical bills in the time frame that shows up on my credit report. There are three seperate instances of a debt claimed to be owed by them for XXXX, XXXX, and XXXX respectively.
The claims were filed in XX/XX/XXXX, XX/XX/XXXX, and XX/XX/XXXX. I am unsure if this is when i was supposed to have actually incrued the debt or if this is when the debt was sent to collections and a claim was submitted, but no matter the case i was never contacted or given notice by them in any way that there was a debt and do not recall ever being in need of medical assistance not covered by my copay at any point prior to the dates these claims were made.
