On Thursday, June 5, a Ministry Health Care staff member received a call from a patient who has been receiving collection letters from a company identified as NCC Common Wealth, claiming to be collecting on debt from a Ministry hospital. The letter indicated a phone number of 570-347-1115.
A quick internet search turned up a number of scam alerts related to this firm along with a very poor rating from the Better Business Bureau.
Ministry Health Care states that they do not use this firm for any kind of revenue collection or billing processing. Should you receive a call from NCC Common Wealth regarding a Ministry Health Care patient bill, please contact Peggy Schley, Ministry Health Care Collections Manager at 920-628-9675.
