Help With Medical CAs

Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone, 

I am relatively new to all of this and I made the mistake of disputing these accounts immediately online through Experian rather than utilizing some of the info that I have found on this amazing forum. I actually just found the forum and I feel so blessed to have so much information at my disposal, though it is overwhelming at first. 

I have two medical bills that hit my credit report from CAs ($288 and $152) and I am wanting to get them removed because they should have never even gone on there. They were opened in June 2020 and Sept 2020 respectively and I was not even getting the bills until I got an email that they were on my credit. 

I have read several things now on potentially using PFD strategies, etc. 

I am looking for any and all advice that anyone can share with me. I am wanting to buy a house soon and these have drastically impacted my FICO (Dropped me down between 520 and 580) across all 3 CR

Please help this noob get back on my feet :)

Welcome to Creditboards!

We hope that you find what you're looking for here.

Some helpful tips:

  • Your post may not get a reply right away. Don't be discouraged, this is a very busy board. If it falls off of the first page, feel free to reply to your post yourself, with the word *bump* in the text. This will *bump* your post back up to the top of the board.
  • If you haven't yet, take a peek at out Newbies Section. Everything that you need to know is in that forum, for the most part. It's a lot of reading, we know, but this credit stuff can have a steep learning curve. In no time, you'll be posting like the pros!
  • If you find that someone is discourteous to you, use the REPORT button at the top right of every post - that will ensure that a moderator or admin looks at the post and decides if it is against the TOS.
  • Off -topic posts should go in the General Forum.


Again, welcome to the CreditBoards family!

Follow the guides;


Check all your reports very carefully for misspelling of your name, unknown addresses and/or alternate SS#s

https://whychat.me/GUIDE HIPAA PROGRAM.html

Send the CRAs the initial dispute letter;



Check your EOMBs ( explanation of medical benefits) for any paid bills relating to the dates of services referred to. Ordinarily medical bills that are delinquent can not be reported until 6 Months past the date of service. It is possible that these are either not yours, or have already been paid by your insurance or are from a JDB ( junk debt buyer) who is poisoning your reports because of your mortgage applications.
