Changes for consumers made jointly by Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion

The three nationwide credit reporting agencies - Equifax, Experian and TransUnion - have agreed to three important changes to reporting medical collection accounts.

ē Paid medical collection debt will no longer be included on consumer credit reports, as of July 1, 2022.

ē The time period before unpaid medical collection debt will appear on a consumerís report will be increased from six months to one year, also effective July 1, 2022. This change gives consumers more time to work with insurance and/or healthcare providers to address medical collection debt before it appears on credit reports.

ē Medical debt collection accounts under at least $500 will no longer be included on consumer credit reports. This goes into effect the first half of 2023.

These significant changes to medical collection debt reporting support consumers faced with unexpected medical bills.

Thank you for sharing that.

I remember reading about them considering that a while back, maybe I read it here?

Was this a law passed or just from the credit reporting agencies? --73.120.xx.xxx

Hmmm..... interesting.

If I see someone has actually paid off a debt that went to collection - medical or otherwise - it's a plus.

On the other hand, a bunch of small ones (under $500) is a negative.

So, this change certainly won't help in evaluating an applicant's credit report. --68.229.xxx.xxx

Came across a few debt stories this last round of vacancies. One person said it was due to Covid and then said she was almost caught up getting things paid off then Covid hit. Another said well I have dental collections when I said no collections. I gave him a chance to explain if he was making payments and there silence like he was dumbfounded he should pay. Then there was the one I rented to. Said Iím nit sure where my credit score is. I had multiple collections and I just paid them all and have proof but Iím not sure how quick it will show up on my credit report. I think she worked with a lawyer, negotiated settlement, took out a loan and paid them off. Now she wants to protect her score and increase it. --107.77.xxx.xx

Using easy rent collection will help raise credit score if prompt payments are going on repeatedly. --76.190.xxx.xxx
