Halifax Pathology Associates, PA
November 9th, 2012 @ 8:29 am

Mom had an outstanding balance of $1,375.02 with Halifax Pathology Associates, PA, the company that handles — as far as I can tell — the billing for blood analysis (and nothing else) done at Halifax Hospital. That total covers six tests done on January 20th, five tests done on January 21st, three tests done on […]

Ford Motor Credit Company, LLC
November 5th, 2012 @ 10:24 am

I’m not 100% certain of all the details surrounding the story, but I know mom basically stopped making car payments on her Ford and they repossessed it. I am pretty sure — if I remember correctly — that I am the one that insisted she stop making payments on it, because she simply didn’t have […]

Communication Breakdown?
November 1st, 2012 @ 11:20 am

As of today, November 1st, 2012, it’s been a full three weeks since I last heard from Steve Phillips, the attorney from Pincus & Currier LLP who is helping me deal with mom’s case. I sent him this email just now, and in it I included my previous two (unanswered) emails:   Hey Steve, I’m […]

Radiology Associates
November 1st, 2012 @ 9:49 am

I found a bill for mom from a place called Radiology Associates. The statement shows it was for something labeled MRI BRAIN WO/W CONTRAST administered at HMC (which I correctly assumed to be Halifax Medical Center) on January 20th, 2012. The amount due is $275.00 and it was supposed to have been paid by 02/25/2012. […]

Volusia Hospitalist LLC
November 1st, 2012 @ 9:45 am

I am slowly and methodically working my way through a huge stack of bills and other paperwork for mom. This morning I found a statement from Volusia Hospitalist LLC dated 03/08/2012. The statement shows the name Mohammad Khan, MD and seems to be for services rendered on January 20th, 24th, and 26th, and February 29th. […]

Florida Hospital DeLand
October 30th, 2012 @ 11:21 am

I found a bill from Florida Hospital DeLand among the stacks of paperwork my sister pulled from mom’s desk. The bill is for $2,169.84 for her visit there on December 1st, 2011. That was the true “beginning of the end” for mom; it hurts to even see that date. I called the number on the […]

J.C. Christensen and Associates, Inc.
October 26th, 2012 @ 9:58 am

I found a “Notice of Collection and Special Offer” from J.C. Christensen and Associates, Inc. for $1170.23, addressed to mom and dated February 8, 2012. It notes that their client is Cavalry Portfolio Services and that Cavalry contracted J.C. Christensen and Associates, Inc. with regard to a delinquent HSBC Bank Nevada N.A. \ Orchard Bank […]

AR Resources, Inc.
October 25th, 2012 @ 1:13 pm

I just called AR Resources, Inc. of Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. I found a bill from them to mom dated January 25, 2012 for $790.00 for “EMRGNCY MEDICINE PROFES”. They’re a collection agency and the bill notes that their client is EMRGNCY MEDICINE PROFESSIONALS, DELAND. There’s nothing on the bill to indicate the date of the […]

BCA Financial Services, Inc.
October 24th, 2012 @ 10:23 am

This morning I called BCA Financial Services, Inc., a collection agency in Miami, Florida. I have three bills here all dated November 3, 2011 and addressed to mom. Each one lists the physician Brenda H. Salter, a location of HMC Port Orange ED, and a service date of July 17, 2011. I’ve never heard or […]

Cavalry Portfolio Services
October 23rd, 2012 @ 8:48 am

On November 11 of last year, mom was mailed a bill for $1,154.67 from a company called Cavalry Portfolio Services. That company seems to have purchased a debt mom owed to HSBC Bank Nevada, which was almost certainly a Visa or Mastercard that she had stopped paying. I called this morning and the woman who […]
