Medical Collections..Score up 10 pts?

I have been using advice found here for over a year and it has been working. Yesterday, had 3 old medical bills report as collections and my Experian score went up 10 pts. I am only familiar with one of the amounts (previously deleted by different CA). My income is protected (SSD and VA). Should I request clarification of the two I am not familiar with or just send an income protected/cease and desist letter? Wondering if they will just delete them since they can't recover. Thanks for any help.

Collections dont increase Fico score something else did and offset the collections reporting. If this is still within your states SOL I would not send and cease and desist as they can still sue, get the judgment and wait till you get other monies not protected and no they wont just delete them since your income is currently protected. Here are the normal steps to go through to pay medicals and get them cleared from your CR, you might have a shot a charity or other type of abatement since you are disabled.

 

For unpaid medical debt that is reporting on your CR:

1. Call the OC and see if insurance can be billed, if not then
2. see if you qualify for Charity Care, if not then
3.  ask that they recall the collection in exchange for full payment
4. Send the reporting CA a PFD offer
5. 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."
