PAY IT!

Let them know what's going on.  I've found collection agencies that work on medical related debt to be VERY EASY to work with.   Let them know that you want a letter stating that this debt considered paid in full, and it will not appear on your credit reports.  Tell them that you'll pay them the same day that you receive a letter stating this.  They may even scan and email this letter to you.
