Can KeyBridge Medical Revenue Care Sue Me or Garnish My Wages?
It is illegal for a debt collector to make empty threats to sue you or garnish your wages. It is also unlikely KMRC would sue you for a debt you may not owe or they cannot validate. However, debt collection agencies are known to have summoned debtors to court and garnish wages after a default judgement. Contacting an attorney BEFORE this could possibly happen would be a smart move. We’ve helped thousands of consumers fight back against unscrupulous debt collection harassers.

Can you help me file a No Fee Lawsuit against KeyBridge Medical Revenue Care?
Absolutely. Here are some Sample Complaints
Complaints against KeyBridge Medical Revenue Care cite problems resulting from disputes about the validity of debts and the accuracy of billing and accounting methods. In February 2017, a complainant stated that she had been contacted by KMRC, who had “attempted to collect payment on a bill that she had paid immediately upon receiving it.” The complainant said that she had been told twice the bill had been paid, but collection efforts continued. According to the complainant, her “husband had a medical procedure done” in December 2014. They “received a bill from Anesthesia Associates of Cincinnati (AAC) for two separate balances, $92.48 each, for a total due of $184.96.” After receiving the bill, the complainant paid it online using the payment portal for the original creditor and received a payment receipt from AAC. The “next month the charge showed on her Visa statement.” Regardless, KMRC “contacted her a few months later saying that AAC had turned her in to collections on the outstanding bill.” She contacted KMRC and told them it had been paid, and KMRC agreed that it had been taken care of. However, she “then received another letter from KMRC on the same bill in March 2016. At that time, she emailed them her receipt and credit card statement as proof. Again, KMRC assured her the matter would be closed.” Subsequently, she received “the third letter, dated Feb 3, 2017 from KMRC attempting to collect payment for” AAC. “This time, the bill was for $92.48—the amount of one of the transactions from the original bill.” The complainant stated that KMRC appeared to be attempting “to separate out the balances to try and collect on them individually this time, in the hope she wouldn’t notice the differing amount from the original collection claim.” She said she would not work with KMRC any further.
In response, KMRC confirmed the complainant’s account and agreed that it had been paid. They stated that they had contacted AAC and asked why the account had been reassigned. KMRC “closed out the account and received notification from the client that specific processes have been put in place to prevent the incident of reassignment from happening in the future.”
KeyBridge Medical Revenue Care Calling You?
Federal laws protect you. The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA) regulates the behavior of collection agencies by prohibiting actions such as the use of abusive or threatening language; harassment; or the use of false or misleading information to collect a debt. The FCRA regulates how collection agencies and creditors report delinquent debts to credit reporting agencies. Additional consumer protection laws include the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Consumer Financial Protection Act (CFPA).
But here’s the rub: If you want to enforce your rights, or recover money for violations — you need to sue. These laws provide individuals like you with a means to seek monetary damages in court. For example, the FDCPA allows consumers who have been violated to recover damages of up to $1,000, plus attorney fees and court costs.
