If you have told her to stop sending texts and she has persisted, she's engaging in harassment. You could go to court and get an order for her to stop. You could also engage an attorney to send her a cease and desist letter. This wouldn't cost you too much and it might get her to stop even without a court order.
If she's revealing confidential medical information about you, you could potentially sue her, depending on the facts, for defamation, invasion of privacy, public release of private facts or a myriad of other causes. You could also potentially sue the collection agency for disclosing this information. Consult an attorney. Most attorneys will provide an initial consultation at no cost.
