Re: Unpaid $171 Medical Bill

Defiantly use the HIPAA process before paying or you will be stuck with a "paid" negative item on your report and it will not help your score at all.You can go in the upper box and type on Hipaa dispute process.

Also, most hospitals I have found to be great abut removing items from the credit report when requested, especially when it is an old debt. 

Good luck
