Other (i.e. phone, health club, etc.) Disclosure verification of debt right to dispute notice not received
HCFS Health Care Financial Services, Inc. Debt collection department,
ACCOUNT RESOLUTION SERVICE # -Recently while conducting a monitor of my credit report I discovered that ACCOUNT RESOLUTION SERVICE has furnished some items that have unverified information. I believe under the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, I have the right to request that you allow me to validate the alleged debt. I am aware that there is a debt from - but I am unaware of the amount due and your bill does not include a breakdown of any fees. Additionally, I am allowed under the HIPAA law [ HEALTH INSURANCE PORTABILITYAND ACCOUNTABILITY ACT OF 1996 ], to protect my privacy and medical records from third parties. I do not recall giving permission to MEDICAL MID OHIO to release my medical information to a third party. I am aware that HIPPAA does allow for limited information about me but anything more than that is to only be revealed with the patients authorization, therefore my request is two fold and as follows, Validation of Debt, and HIPAA authorization.
3.Cease any credit bureau reporting until debt has been validated by me. 4.Please send this information to my address listed above and accept this formal complaint as my formal debt validation request, which I am allowed under the FDCPA. Please note that falsification of the information you received from any medical provider can be percieved as a HIPAA compliance violation as well as a violation of the FDCPA because you will be deceiving me after my written request of debt validation. I request full documentation of what you received from the provider of service in connection with this alleged debt. Additionally, any reporting of this debt to the credit bureaus prior to allowing me to validate it may be a violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, which can allow me to seek damages from a collection agency.
