Collection "report date" question.

I was looking over some of my collection accounts on my credit report. I noticed that a specific CA hasn't reported several accounts(from a hospital) since 2012. What would cause them to not report it for so long? Is this grounds for a dispute? I have read trying to propose a DVL would amount to nothing, especially with the accounts being 4 or 5 years old. A little insight would be helpful! Thank you!

Money, it costs them every time they update it, this is actually good for you as its aging in the eyes of Fico if it were reporting every month it would be keeping your Fico score depressed.

Since this is medical debt there are some things you can do over and above a normal collection.

 

For unpaid medical debt that is reporting on your CR:

 

1. Call the OC and see if you qualify for Charity Care
2. If not then ask that they recall the collection in exchange for full payment
3. Send the reporting CA a PFD offer
4. Google the HIPAA Process and contact its creator for help

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

- Rhonda Byrne
