If medicare was supposed to be billed for this service, contact the medical provider and explain the situation, ask them to remove the account from collections and from your credit report and correctly bill Medicare if there is still time to do so. An error with the medical billing should not be on you. Of course the collection company will tell you that you have to pay them, whether you really do or not, the only thing they care about is money. If you have been wronged here and cannot get things straightened out, you should contact a consumer law attorney for a consultation. Do some reading on the FDCPA (fair debt collection practices act) since a debt collector is involved in this mess, you will learn some helpful information. Keep in mind that paying a collection does not remove it from your reports unless you negotiate a "pay for delete agreement".
