Unless there was something court ordered or written up legally that your employer was supposed to pay these bills I would say that you are responsible for them. I don't know what you mean when you say that they send it back. Do you mean that they are returning your payment and not accepting it? Who are you trying to pay? If it was the original medical care provider they probably cannot accept the payment because the account was sold to a collection company. You will have to pay the collection company, get their info off of your credit reports. Try to get a PAY FOR DELETE AGREEMENT, so do some reading on those. If the collection company listed on your reports refuses your payment then contact an attorney that handles FDCPA cases and see what they have to say. FDCPA is Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
