Never received bill? Collections?
I went to the E.R. 4 months ago. I received bills from the hospital and the specialist and paid them in full. I found out there was another bill for the physicians, but I never received a bill during the past 4 months to pay it. How can I prove this? I have read the reviews on this particular billing agency and it seems they are notorious for playing this game. Suggestions?
Also, should you receive a final notice before a company turns a bill over to collections? That's how it use to be done back in my younger years.
I guess you have to be a psychic and know what bills are suppose to be coming to your house automatically?

You should receive a bill before they turn the account over to collections.
There is no requirement that they send a "final notice" as you are expected to pay (or at least work out something) with them upon receiving the bill.

Don't bother. Proving it is a waste of your time. Whether or not you received the bill makes absolutely no difference. The billing agency does exactly the same thing whether or not you received a bill and whether or not you prove that you didn't. Nothing gets removed from your credit just because you didn't receive a bill. You are required to pay on time even if you don't get a bill. There is no reason to prove it; proof will not change anything.
