Consumer Complaint: On XX/XX/XXXX I had a preventative care visit at one of my physicians under XXXX which is fully covered by my insurance provider.

I contacted XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX and advised it should have been covered by my insurance carrier XXXX and I should not be charged. I was advised by XXXX to disregard the bill that it was an error from the Dr. ‘s office that they encoded the visit wrong. Approximately a 1-2 months later I receive another bill for {$50.00}. I contacted XXXX again and was advised to disregard the bill and that there was a note on my account. In XX/XX/XXXX/XX/XX/XXXX I received a notice from a collection agency Apex stating I owed {$50.00} to virtua and my account is now in collection.

In XXXX XXXX resubmitted the claim to my insurance carrier and advised that everything was resolved. On XX/XX/XXXX I received a collection notice for the same issue now for {$110.00}. I contacted XXXX and was advised XXXX denied the claim due to it being 180 days after the visit and sent a notice to XXXX that they must send an letter of explanation in order for the claim to be paid. I have reached out to XXXX, who advised I don’t have a balance or an account in Collections and has asked I forward the collection notice. XXXX provided a fax number which did not work. I have been calling on a weekly basis since XX/XX/XXXX and can not reach anyone, have left several messages and do not receive a call back. The issue is still outstanding and at risk for damaging my credit.
