What is MiraMed Revenue Group?
is a collection agency that specializes in medical debt. If you have an outstanding bill at a doctor's office, the debt may be sent to MiraMed. Like most debt collectors, MiraMed is relentless about contacting you to pay your bill. On top of this, they also report the outstanding debt to the credit reporting agencies, which can lower your credit score by as much as 100 points. That ding on your record will remain for seven years.
You can contact MiraMed in four different ways:

Your Options for Dealing With MiraMed Revenue Group
Debt collectors can be frustrating and intimidating to deal with, and that's no accident. People who don't know their rights and are scared of debt collection agencies are more likely to pay what's demanded without a fight. But that doesn't mean you don't have many options. To protect your rights and get the best outcome, follow these steps:
Request Written Communication
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) gives you the right to request that debt collectors communicate with you by writing. If you're trying to negotiate over the phone you will have no proof of what you were promised. As soon as they contact you, inform them that you want them to communicate with you only in writing. If they argue, you can tell them that they're in violation of the FDCPA and hang upon them. You can contact and check your rights here:
|Email or Contact Form||Email Form|
|Mailing Address||600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Washington, DC 20580|
|Phone Number||(202) 326-2222|
Request Debt Validation
The FDCPA also gives you the right to request debt validation from the collection agency, so you can verify that they have the correct information. You only have 30 days from when you're first contacted, so don't wait.
You must submit a formal debt validation letter, at which time will be required to respond within 30 days. If they can't verify your account, they will have to remove their report from your account.
Dispute the Account
Even if they verify your debt, you still have the legal right to dispute the account. If there is any inaccurate information on their account, you can dispute it. This will require you to pull a copy of your credit report and carefully compare that information to MiraMed's claims. If any detail is wrong, such as the spelling of your name, small differences in the outstanding balance, or payment information, you can dispute it. They have 30 days to investigate and reply.
Negotiate a Pay-For-Delete Agreement
If you've clearly established that MiraMed has the correct information, and the debt is yours, you can next make a pay-for-delete agreement. Debt collectors want to get payment, so they may be willing to negotiate with you to remove the account from your credit report if you pay. Be sure to get the agreement in writing, and start out by offering to pay a portion of the debt. This may seem unlikely, but debt collectors typically buy debt for pennies on the dollar, and it may be worth it to them.
They won't be eager to remove your account but hold your ground, and you may be able to get them to agree. Be sure to follow up in a month and verify that they've done what they said they would. If they haven't, that written correspondence will come in handy.
