  • Dispute the Unpaid Debt – One way to get a medical debt off your credit report is to dispute the bill. If you don’t believe you owe them money, due to the statute of limitations running out, fraud, or other issues out of your control, you can contact the creditor to have the debt removed.
  • Contact Your Insurance Company – If you believe that your health insurance company should have paid the bill, contact them to do so. If they do, your credit report should reflect a positive change and delete any of the negative information.
  • Pay the Bill Off – If you know that you owe the amount you’re being billed for, it’s a good idea to just step up and pay it off. Most collection agencies, including Amcol Systems, provide flexible payment plans so people can pay off their medical debts over time.

Also, remember:

  • You have the right to ask Amcol Systems to stop contacting you if you believe the debt is too old, has been paid off, or is fraudulent. Although they will stop contacting you directly, they may still be able to file a lawsuit to collect the debt.
  • You can specify how you want Amcol Systems to communicate with you regarding the debts you may owe. You may choose to deal with them directly, allow your spouse to communicate with them, or you could hand over the communications to your lawyer.
  • If you believe that Amcol Systems (or any collection agency) has violated the FDCPA, you should report them to the FTC and CFPB. There are stiff fines and penalties for unethical debt collection practices and you should never fear repercussions for reporting a collection agency.
