How many billers would know about the  Pending bill H.R. 2211, the Accuracy in Reporting Medical Debt Act?

This will be a bill entitling consumers have ample time to resolve medical billing questions and potential errors before medical debt can be reported to the credit bureaus.

This would mean billers / physicians office billing staff, KNOW collection laws.

I do billing for mental health providers in several states, Nevada, Texas, Maryland, Tennessee, Connecticut. Where can I learn about the collection agency laws so I can advise my client's?

Thank you,

Barbara

You'll want to read up on the Fair Debt Collection Practices (Federal). In addition each state has their own collection rules. For example, your state may require the Mini Miranda in certain circumstances when doing patient billing.   You'll want to look at each state you have a client in as well as the state your billing from.
