Consumer Complaint: I first received a letter saying I owed for a medical service with no date. When I wrote to them and told them I never dealt with this practice or had this service, the sent me another bill with a date of XX/XX/2018. I then wrote to them and told them this is not my debt, I had and have, health insurance during that time period and they have no record of me being billed by this company or that service.
I have since had multiple phone calls from them as well as another bill dated XX/XX/2018 after I told them this is not my debt, stop contacting me. Each bill has a slightly different variation of this companys name.
