Hello everyone. I hope this is the right forum for this.

I'd like to know what the correct steps to take are when disputing a hospital bill that's been sent to collections for late or no payment. I just received the notice (dated Aug 24th) in the mail today from the collection service. They say in their letter that I have 30 days to dispute the validity of the debt.

It's my belief that the bill they say they are due simply fell through the cracks of the insurance claims process. I guess I have a lot of research to do to find out which claims are involved and why they didn't get paid.

Thank you very much in advance, and have a great day.


Doug
