Frost-Arnett is a legitimate and licensed debt collection agency. Despite their legitimacy, they have faced multiple consumer complaints and negative reviews.
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) has registered 83 customer complaints against them within the last three years, mainly concerning billing or collection issues, as well as reports of harassment, like being called at odd hours.
If Frost-Arnett is attempting to collect debts that you have already paid or are otherwise not responsible for, the Federal Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) offers you protection.
Per this law, debt collectors must remove any inaccurate information from your credit report. If they fail to comply, you may be eligible to pursue damages in court.

Frost-Arnett collects for many healthcare providers, including hospitals, clinics, and private doctors’ offices. A few of their most notable clients include:
Keep in mind that this is not an exhaustive list. They are licensed to collect debt in all 50 states, so they likely service a lot of healthcare providers.
If you’ve been called or received a letter from Frost-Arnett, the first thing to do is determine which healthcare provider the debt is for. Once you know the provider, contact them to verify the debt’s legitimacy and get any additional information you need to resolve the issue.
The answer to this question depends on several factors. Generally, If you owe Frost-Arnett money (and its legitimate debt), in most cases, it’s best to pay it off as soon as possible via a debt settlement agreement, payment plan, pay-for-delete, etc.
If you don’t, they may take legal action against you to recover the debt. This could include:
However, there are some instances where not paying the debt could be more beneficial to your credit score. The most common example of this is debt that’s past the statute of limitations.
Before you decide to pay the debt or ignore it, it’s in your best interest to consult with a proven attorney experienced in debt law. They will advise you of your rights and the best steps to remove Frost-Arnett from your credit as soon as possible.
If the debt you owe Frost-Arnett is invalid, you have the right to dispute it. Consult with Fair Credit - we can help you to decipher errors on your report. We will also dispute any errors on your behalf and ensure they come off of your report. According to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), any inaccurate information on your credit report can be disputed, including debts you don’t owe.
If, however, the debt is validated, you can choose between negotiating a payment plan with Frost-Arnett or challenging them in court.
Remember that if the debt isn’t legitimate, you have no legal requirement to pay it. If Frost-Arnett continues harassing or reporting false debts against you despite your dispute, there may be grounds for legal action under FDCPA and FCRA laws.
When dealing with Frost-Arnett or other debt collectors, being careful about what you say is crucial. To protect yourself from legal repercussions associated with debt collection proceedings, there are certain conversations that you should avoid. They include but aren’t limited to the following:
