Ministry Health Care says a member of their staff received a call from a patient who has been receiving collection letters from a company identified as NCC Common Wealth collecting on debt from one of our hospitals. 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 said they do not use this firm for any kind of revenue collection or billing processing.

If you receive a call from NCC Common Wealth regarding a patient bill please contact Peggy Schley, Ministry Health Care Collections Manager at 920.628.9675.
