Yes they can! We have had to prove to these stupid doctors, labs, etc. that they were paid.
Around here, the doctor will bill the primary insurance company, then, when they send the portion tothe secondary insuranceto pay, they send it to a collection agency at the same time. We have to wait for the insurance company to pay their parts, then send it to the doctor’s office (they are lousy with paperwork some of them. others are great.), plus, we have to copy the bill and the insurance documents that prove the doctor has been paid and send it to the credit reporting bureaus.
then, it is removed. they will do it in a heartbeat. i think they are covering their asses and trying to ensure they get paid, but they don’t want to wait for the insurance companies to do their job, so they bill us (the patient) thinking we will pay (and later argue with some company to get
our money back on our own), but we don’t fall for that crap any longer.
