In response to the announcement that it was being sued by the Attorney General of Washington for violating state law related to the disclosures required when sending initial collection notices, Harris & Harris provided the following statement to AccountsRecovery.net. The statement was made by Ari Derman, the company’s General Counsel:
Harris & Harris (H&H) has proudly worked with Providence to collect on delinquent account receivables since 2019 and have been working cooperatively with our client to help them defend this matter. H&H fervently denies the AG’s allegation pertaining to the letter claims. Our office represents over 25 healthcare providers throughout the United States and is well versed at helping administer charity care programs for nearly all of them. H&H provided excellent service to Providence patients and will continue to do so. We are working with our outside counsel at Hinshaw & Culbertson and our industry trade groups to protect our interests and those of fellow collection agencies that lawfully operate in Washington State.
