What happens if I do not pay my outstanding balance?

If you do not pay your balance within 120 days of your claim being issued, or make payment arrangements with Medic, your claim may be submitted to the North Carolina Debt Set-off program which results in the redirection of funds due to you from the state to pay the claim, submitted to the Mecklenburg County Tax Collector for enforced collection, and/or submitted to a collection agency which includes reporting the delinquency to credit bureaus.  It is important to pay the claim upon receipt.  Contact one of Medic’s dedicated billing services employees at 704-943-6400 to discuss any questions regarding your obligation to satisfy this debt.
