Medical False statements or representation attempted to collect wrong amount
AmeriCollect Debt collection department,
I received a bill from Americollect on - -, - for $250.00 for the services of - - of Nevada. The issue with this bill is that my insurance provider at the time, Nevada - -, is in Permanent Receivership. Had my insurance provider not been in Receivership I would have had a zero co-pay for - services. This was communicated to - - of Nevada and they are well aware that under the Permanent Receivership, " The - will focus initial efforts on two parallel goals : ( 1 ) avoiding disruption in the delivery of health care to the Enrollees for the period that they are entitled to receive such care from - ( ending no later than - -, - ), and ( 2 ) maximizing payment to Providers and creditors for services rendered initially during the receivership period ( which commenced on - -, - ) and thereafter for amounts owed for services rendered before that date.
