What these people are trying to collect is the adjusted amount. I am on Medicare, and like other insurance companies, there is an agreed upon charge for services and balance must be adjusted off. Well, these adjusted amounts have been bought 3 separate times. I have asked for itemized statement from medical facility and have been told that they do not have to provide this as it is protected under Hippa law. I have also sent EOB's which to date have been ignored. I am not elderly and won't be strong armed into paying, but these people have to stop being permitted to do this. I have also disputed this with credit companies, but they are still on credit report. Suggestions? Can a law suit be filed against people like this?
