Welcome to the Florida Collectors Association

We hope that you will find this web site to be educational and informative.

The Florida Collectors Association is a trade association of professional debt collectors with offices in Florida. The FCA holds two conferences per year for its members where they can network with peers and share information of our industry with one another.

Members of the FCA also hold mandatory dual membership in ACA International, the "Association of Credit and Collection Professionals", which provides a wide range of industry-specific information and resources needed to stay compliant, train your staff to perform at their peak, and enhance your agency's bottom line.

As the demands of federal and state laws and regulations increase, agencies must increase their understanding. FCA offers members the education and information to assure compliance through legislative updates, and practical best practices.FCA members must stay informed and in compliance with laws and legislative updates. Information regarding the Fair Debt Collection Practice Act (FDCPA)Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA) are available through this web site.

There are a growing number of lawsuits against collection agencies for attempting to collect debts from individuals who were hurt on the job and are eligible for worker's compensation coverage. In fact, the number of suits alleging this fact pattern more than doubled in 2020, compared with 2019. Collection agencies need to be aware of these lawsuits and, more importantly, how to prevent them from happening in the first place.


"I highly encourage our FCA members that collect on medical debt (or are thinking about it in the future) to register for this Free webinar as it pertains to the laws of the great state of Florida. I know we all are very busy with so many changes going on in the industry and provider volume being down, but, hopefully, you can gain some insight to effect higher recovery and avoid needless litigation. You might want to even pass it along to your provider clients."
- FCA President- Matt Kiefer, MBA The Preferred Group of Tampa
