You are getting bills because the agency that determines these matters and the agency that collects are two different entities. They don't work well together (which is typical for Florida governmental entities).
All you can do is make contact with the collecting agency, demand that they certify the debt, that they not report your credit and then send them something from the referee (if you got paperwork) showing that you do not have to repay.
They are slow and ineffectual, but they will eventually get it right.
