Consumer Complaint: I was in a car accident XX/XX/XXXX and was treated at XXXX XXXX XXXX hospital in XXXX, TN. One of the providers was XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, who billed the incorrect insurance for their services. I received a billing statement dated XX/XX/XXXX stating that I owed {$43.00} and I immediately noticed that the insurance company showing as primary was incorrect.

I contacted XXXX XXXX XX/XX/XXXX and spoke with XXXX who stated she would rebill the correct primary insurance and remove the incorrect one. I checked back with her on XX/XX/XXXX as I had now received a {$43.00} bill from XXXX XXXX XXXX. She told me she would remove me from collections and resubmit again for payment with XXXX XXXX. I updated my address with her and XXXX told me to check back in 30 days.

I called back on XX/XX/XXXX and spoke with XXXX who stated that the claim had been denied. I proceeded to call XXXX XXXX that same morning and spoke with an agent named XXXX who told me that there was no claim ever filed on XX/XX/XXXX for {$210.00}, which was the amount that XXXX stated. I, once again, called back XXXX XXXX and spoke with a supervisor ( XXXX ) and asked her to remove me from collections, provide proof and I would pay the {$43.00} upon proof. She told me the process would take about 3 weeks.

Today, XX/XX/XXXX, I called and asked for XXXX, who was not available, and spoke with another supervisor ( XXXX ), who was extremely rude. She stated that the collection agency would NOT recall the collection and that the claim had been denied. She gave me a claim # XXXX and told me to contact XXXX XXXX again.

I spoke with a wonderful rep at XXXX XXXX, XXXX, who helped me through the many calls that followed this morning. She stated that the claim number given to me by the supervisor at XXXX XXXX was not one of XXXX XXXX claim numbers. We conferenced in XXXX and XXXX advised her that the claim # was not valid. She referred us to the person who denied the claim from the local XXXX XXXX office ( XXXX XXXX – XXXX ). We called that number and it was a wrong #.


XXXX from XXXX XXXX then got in touch with someone from the local TN XXXX XXXX office that gave her a phone number for the ” Plan to Plan ” office, however, I could not be a part of the call, so I had to be on hold.

XXXX was advised that all the claims that XXXX XXXX sent were to the incorrect insurance carrier ( XXXX ) which I repeatedly told them was incorrect.

XXXX will be calling me back on or around XX/XX/XXXX to advise me if the claim has been sent to her office for processing.

I want XXXX XXXX held responsible for the numerous times that they dropped the ball here, resulting in the account sent to collections.
