$15 medical bill went to collections - how do i fix this?
I just received a call today from a collection agency to collect a $15 debt owed to my OBGYN for a March visit. I really thought I had paid this but guess I didn't. I told the collections I would pay directly to the OB which I did online immediately following the call. Will this affect my credit report still? If so what is the best way to get it removed? We are buying a house next year and don't want this to affect my rating. Its my first collections issues. Thanks to all contributors in advance.
