Is it better to pay off a medical bill or fight it to have it removed? I was fighting my DR. About the diagnosis on a bill because Insurance wouldn't cover it and while that was happening I was reported to credit. I lost the fight with the Dr and insurance so I started making monthly payments with the creditor and I'm almost done. Now, I'm trying to buy a house and it's bringing down my score enough to make a difference in the mortgage percent. So, should I pay it off or should I fight the creditor to have it removed from my credit?
