I think this is how it would go -
Judge : What do you owe them?
Collections company: We do not know
Billing company: We do not know
Me: Since you do not know that amount can you get the amount removed from my credit report because that should fall under that link I sent earlier. ( I think the billing company lady doesn't want to admit her mistake but they are not removing it from my credit report therefore its inaccurate amount. Whats really funny is she doesn't remember talking to me any of the multiple times.)
but keep in mind after reading the dispute laws etc.. I think this is a simple dispute in the long run. And to answer your question why they haven't paid I really have no idea. This has been a complete mess for me. I can't begin to tell you how many people I had to call 6 times for one single bill over and over, how many times I had to show up to billing office over and over.. It's really simple. They have to rebill the primary and then rebill the secondary after the primary went through, but when they would rebill they would bill the wrong insurance in the wrong order do other silly things.
I can tell you that about 23 different people It talked to didn't believe about this mess and said I need to pay my bills ha! Soooooo I started faxing and emailing and then they were like wow you weren't lying. It does make matters worse that the hospital got new billing software and credit the wrong people with my money too. I know this because I help out with the doctor every once in a great while. For the most part if you got someone on the phone that would listen things were solved.
