Medical debt collector
(Vicksburg, MS 39180)
I have been contacted by a collection agency that said they were not a collection agency & refused to send anything in writing. I was told amounts & dates from January 2007 until June 2011. (I have an insuranc co-pay). I contacted the medical provider & they told me that these had been turned over to a collection agency and they will send me the itemized information. I was also asked by the woman where my income came from as I am unemployed. My medical care provider told me that they were not supposed to ask me that question. The collection agency also had an old address, but still would not send me anything. Is this agency acting in accordance with laws in Mississippi? Thank you.
