The company’s consumer advocate applauds changes concerning medical debt
Salt Lake City, UT – March 16, 2015 – Lexington Law, a consumer advocacy law firm and trusted leader in credit report repair, responds in favor to the agreement announced on Monday by Equifax, Experian and TransUnion, to adopt major changes that aim to improve consumers’ credit scores.
Among other things, the agreement addresses late medical-bill payments and the handling of customer complaints. Under the new agreement, set to take effect within the next several months, the credit reporting agencies have agreed to delay inclusion of any unpaid medical bills in a credit report for six months, giving both consumers and insurance companies more time to take care of payment. Additionally, consumers will no longer have to wait for the medical debt to be removed from their credit report. Credit reporting companies will erase the item after the debt has been paid.
