2010 emergency hospital debt for $9233.00 and I don't have $to pay it back.
I can borrow about $3000.00 to repay this old debt, but how do I address this to the collection company and get that amount accepted?

tell them the truth

tell them that all you have is $3000 but only agree to pay them that if they will delete it from your credit report get this in written proof befor giving them the payment if they will not agree to a pay to delete you are better off waiting 3 more yrs and it will fall off your credit report.

i forgot to mention if you ever have another er visit that you can not pay for set up a payment plan with the hospital even if you only can pay $5 a month it will keep it from going to collections.
