That does not mean everything is 100% covered

You need to start Reading the EOB's and understand what is covered by each and what you are required to pay.

Each policy has its limitations.  That does not mean they paid all the bills.  The best time to ask this question is long before it made its way to your credit report.   For example, perhaps one of the bills was never charged to your insurance.  They sent the bill to you.  When you tossed it aside and ignored it, they had no knowledge of your insurance and began the collection process.   When you got the bills and it showed what they charged, what they charged to the insurance and what your potion was, you should have gotten with them at that time.   You may still have recourse,  get statements on those amounts and start going over them now to see what should have gone to the insurance and help them get their money if insurance should have paid.  This will reduce your burden and could possibly remove the debt.
