I was waiting for a court date from hospital, instead they reported to credit bureaus. What to do
Dramatically dropped my score. Not right. We had a court date,they didn't show up. We got a new date schedule and they called to ask to cancel court date and just agree to discuss again in the future if my financial situation changes.

What are you saying here? You owe the hospital money and they were going to take you to court for the money and get a judgement against you, but instead they decided not to proceed due to you not being in the position to pay and then added the accounts to your credit report? Sounds like a typical scenario to me, if you don't pay bills it goes on your credit reports to punish you. You are lucky that they didn't proceed with the court proceedings, hopefully you can slip by until the "statute of limitations" expires on the debt if you are not in a position to pay.
