Equifax Removed Medical Collections Under $500

Woke up to a nice surprise today - 11 medical collections under $500 that I had on Equifax (but not on Experian or TransUnion) were removed from my credit reports.  These were under three different collection agencies, so it was not a case of another collection agency buying them out.  It appears Equifax is finally removing them.  Check your own reports for any changes!  82 point increase, now all three FICO scores for me are 750+.

I'm going to pay them all off in time, as I fully believe in paying off my debts.  But they won't ruin me now from being able to buy a home, a car or any other privilege that requires having good credit.

TU removed my medical collection under $500 around 3/10/23 but I didn't receive score bump. I read somewhere that the medical collection would start coming off 3/31/23 but I see the CRA have started early.
