We are using a new and aggressive Collections agency. They are very expensive and should your account go to Collections your bill will increase 35% or so. They refer delinquent accounts to all three credit bureaus promptly. Please monitor and pay your bills on time. Once in Collections, it is out of our hands. We are not permitted to even discuss your account once its in their hands. We give ample notification you have an overdue bill. Please don’t tangle with these folks. All patients in Collections are converted to “cash only-self pay”.
