OK, unfortunately Indiana is a veritable wasteland when it comes to consumer protection, however;
You need to compose a letter to the LEGAL DEPARTMENT of the hospital.
Send it CRRR
Outline the facts of the case, make sure you give dates of service, your ins. policy # etc. etc.
State that you are not responsible under Federal FCBA and Indiana statutes for their error.
Inform them that any action on their part to illegally collect from you any monies due as a result of their error will subject them to liability under the provisions of the FCRA and the Federal Fraudulent Claims Act.
In addition, if any action on their part leads directly or indirectly to derogatory information on any consumer credit report,you will take appropriate legal action against them for slander of credit.
State that a copy of this letter is being filed with the Indiana AG's office, the Ind. dept. of Insurance, your own insurance company and the lawyer who handled your original accident case.
Request that the erroneous account be immediately purged from all and any records and archives, and that if any reporting or assignment for collection has taken place it must be immediately rescinded and purged from any assignees records.
Here is the link for the Ind. AG office, and the Ind Ins. Commission
