I don't understand what you said. I don't know if you meant the hospital itself or if there is another agency. I was hoping for more detailed info & address, and/or phone number. I did look up county hospital district office on google and nothing was listed that I could use.
Burlington County, Buttonwood Hospital, Pemberton City, NJ. I do remember getting a copy of the lien thru a state agency in Trenton, NJ but lost it and now can't remember what agency I used in 2003.
I already knew the Buttonwood Hospital had a lien dept. I was searching for a state lien office info. The reason I do not prefer to ask Buttonwood for the lien papers is because I paid the lien off to purchase a house. Having medical insurance to pay for the Buttonwood expenses, I should have been reimbursed. Initially, I had to provide a bank check showing I indeed paid the lien off, Buttonwood claimed they had no record of pay-off. I got a copy of the discharge. Then, I lost the paperwork. The bank had disregarded any/all check copies in 2004 when consolidating. I paid $25,000. to pay the lien. I was never reimbursed by Buttonwood when my medical insurance paid the total bill which has since been confirmed.
I went to the website you suggested listed in the previous response. It is not viable. the /.../ was supposed to be /consumer/ which I finally found out on my own. However, I will attempt to contact Buttonwood Hospital, Lien Discharge Dept. directly and see if I get anywhere with them. In 2003, they initially claimed they had no record of the lien discharge until I utilized a state department in Trenton, NJ. for which I can't remember the name of..from Adam. And..my initial question to you was...are 2003 records still accessible regarding NJ county hospital bills. I paid the lien off with cash $25,000. to buy a house, thinking my medical insurance would pay the bill afterwards which they did and I should have been reimbursed at that time which never happened. The bank no longer has check records for those dates. If I can prove the lien was discharged, prior to the medical insurance pay off date, I may have a claim.
Thank you for your continued assistance. Even though, I am back to square 1, contacting the hospital, I do appreciate your help.
