Pay hospital or collection agency

Always ALWAYS PAY THE HOSPITAL.  I was able to pull medical collections out of the collection agencies and back into 3 different hospitals and make payment arrangements.  You never want to pay a collection agency unless you negotiate a smaller balance and have written agreement they will remove from your credit upon receipt of agreement payment.  Collection agencies are ruthless and keep horrible records.  Plus you always want to be in good standing with the hospital should you ever need their services again.
