Medical Collections

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?

Re: Medical Collections

In the eyes of FICO, a collection is a collection.

 

Where it may be overlooked is on a manual review.

 

Is it paid?

Re: Medical Collections

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.

Re: Medical Collections

There is no HIPAA process on this site.  We aren't allowed to discuss it, only tell posters where to look for it.

Re: Medical Collections

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?

Re: Medical Collections

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.
