Medical collections
I have a poor credit score. I didn't realize I had medical bills that went to collection agencies. I call all the companies and paid the debts. For some I settled and others paid in full. Is there anything else I need to do to now to get my score higher? Do I need to also dispute with each credit bureau? How long will it take for my score to reflect that all are paid? Do I need to go back to each collection agency and ask them to close the account?
