Thank the USA for that. Medical bills are the #1 thing in the US that impacts credit scores. Not only is our healthcare system still broken, it works with credit reporting to help keep you down in the dirt paying a premimum for credit products. Stop the bleeding first. Get better health insurance or find a way to stop getting hit with high medical bills. Yeah I know easier said then done or its simply going to be impossible. You'll have to wait 7 years for the collections to drop off your report OR start disputing EVERY collection and hope they dont respond so it drops off. Good luck. Ive been there. I took the wait 7 years option.
