My doctor's desk person would like me to bring in the $50 I owe them plus the copay at my next visit. They'd already sent it to collections (a day after they received my partial payment according to her, but whatever). Now desk lady says I should bring it in and they will report it paid to the collections. "Or pay them" she added. Who shall I pay? Are there advantages to paying either? I wish he hadn't reported me for that and then turned around and asked me to being it in. I'm working towards a house someday and I am sure this sent to collections dinged my credit report.
