Hello , So im 22 years old , i have a medical bill in collections from when i was 19. Im a type 1 Diabetic went to the ER because i ran out of Insulin and i was having problems with my Medi-Cal. So they charged me the ER bill which was around
$ 567 i beleive. I didnt know about the bill until i purchased a car last year. I then contacted the collections agency that my bill was sent to and paid around 200 of it. I now owe $367...

If you haven't paid the full amount of your collection it's not going to help. You can try contacting the collections agency and see if they will do a "Pay to remove" but if they dont it will still be on your credit report for 7 years.
