If you completed a dispute with the credit bureau and it was denied, this means that the bureau asked the collection firm to validate the debt which they apparently did.  You indicated you had medicaid during the time.  Medicaid does not pay 100% of the charges or they denied the charge for whatever reason.  In some localities, calling the ambulance and refusing to ride would still make the charge valid.  If the ambulance was remotely yours, ensure they have the medicaid information necessary to bill the charges, even if you are not on medicaid today.  Otherwise, be prepared to be hounded about the bill until it is paid.
