Consumer Complaint: I went to the hospital and provided my insurance information. However, by the looks of it, there are bills on my credit that I do not owe. I contacted the credit agency XXXX and requested proof that the information they had was incorrect. They stated the only thing they had was a itemization of services. I explained to them by law, they are required to provide me with something of me agreeing to the amount that was left because the hospital never advised me that I had a remaining balance on my credit report. They just continued to provide me with they are correct. I spoken to several agent with XXXX and it only gets worse with every agent.
