Question for the Money Doctors

Question submitted on Apr 24, 2012.

Question

we are on a direct payment plan with Princeton medical(in New Jersey). we just got a letter stating our bill is going to collections due to a payment being late. the payment was payed for the month. Can they legally send it to collections for being a couple days late?

Answer

They can send it if it''s 1 day late. Late is Late. I would think however that they would show some common business sense and courtesy!

My suggestion is to call the office and speak to the manager. After all, they now have to give the agency their cut (probably 30%). It's much better for them to be patient for a while.
