Did my doctor's office send my bill to collections agency?
What confused me is that I never received a bill from my doctor's office concerning this matter. I am sure that they have my correct address and phone number. Did my doctor's office send me to collections too soon? Legally, is there a certain amount of times (or length of time) a medical office has to try to contact me before sending me to collections? This bill is only for $10.00. If this medical office is in the wrong, is this even worth fighting for or should I just pay it? Will it affect my credit score? Just what are my options?
