Collection on Credit Report
I have a medical bill that was forwarded to West Asset Management (collection agency). I sent a letter advising them I was dealing with the medical provider directly and not to contact me again.
I have since been dealing with the med provider, have made payments directly to them which they have cashed, however West Asset has listed it at the credit bureau as a "collection".
What can we do? We have excellent credit. The medical bill is due to cancer and the provider was paid substantially by health insurance. The balance left is what health insurance did not pay.
