Workmans Comp
« on: January 31, 2012 01:26:47 PM »
In the fall of 2011 I was injured on the job and it fell to Workmans Comp.

I recieved x-rays at the beginning, and then recieved a bill 30 days later.

This I brought to my employers attention , I was not responsible for it as it was Workmans Comp.

Thirty days later AGAIN, end of December , I recieved a past due Invoice, Once again , brought to my Employer.


Yesterday it was sent to collections. Now the Xrays werent the only part of my claim, I had PT for 8 weeks and WC paid all of that.

My question is, what is your employer doing about this?  I know someone on Worker's Comp and she definitely makes sure that all paperwork is handled by her employer even to the point of contacting the District Manager of her area.  When she contacted her, things got moving very fast! :vbwoohoo:

It may be possible that the X-ray doctor does not know it is a Workers Comp claim. In most states the doctors bill Workers Comp directly and the patient never sees a bill. Talk with the doctor.

Update, I did contact Workmans Comp on the above issue, and they assure me that they will take care of it.

However, Last week I recieved another dunning letter less than two weeks from the last one I recieved.

When I called the Collection Agency and asked if Workmans Comp had paid them, they said not to worry about the letter, they automatically generate them every 2 weeks?

 Im thinking every two weeks? Dont they have to follow the same FDCPA policies?

What did the first two letters say?  It could be in the collection department of the OC so it may not fall under the FDCPA. 
TUN - 791/850 (05-28-2014). EQU - 816/850 (01-19-2014). EXP - 796/850 (06-03-2014).

Demands for payment in less than 30 days of receipt of the initial dunning notice have been determined by the courts to OVERSHADOW AND CONTRADICT the 30 day validation period provided for in the FDCPA.

Want to stop the letters quick? Take the position that since it is a Workers Compensation case you don't owe the doctor anything and never did and that therefore ANY allegation that you do or did owe the doctor anything is a misrepresentation of the legal nature and character of the debt (a word for word FDCPA violation). Inform the CA of this and tell them (if you want to be nice) that the next letter you get from them,and that includes a Christmas Card, better have a $1000 check payable to you enclosed or they will be sued. If you don't want to be nice, just sue now.

Do you have proof the PT bill was paid?

What precisely are you claiming as "overshadowing" in the second letter?
