I have a medical collection, i thought that medical collections would not hurt your credit score. This collection also poped up recently. Even thoe its from a few years back, is there anyway to get this off?

Medical collections are actually the easiest to remove depending on your situation of course, the older the better.
I suggest you read up on the HIPPAA process on this website.

I agree, a collection is a collection. Your score doesn't care what type or even how much it is. Have you tried for a PFD?

Lasardo could you please send me the HIPAA info also. I have about 5 medical collections on my credit from a while back when I was sick and they are they only thing on there. I would love to be able to have these removed. Or do a PFD or something.

In the eyes of FICO, a collection is a collection.
Where it may be overlooked is on a manual review.
Is it paid?
