Lexington Law Affirms Federal Study: Medical Bills Unfairly Target Families

Lexington Law helps families fix poor credit


SALT LAKE CITY, UT—January 28, 2014 –Lexington Law, the nation’s leading credit repair firm, affirmed a federal study released yesterday by the National Center for Health Statistics regarding the burdensome impact of medical billing on American families.  The study revealed that almost one in five families found it difficult to pay their medical bills.

“We see it every day,” said Dr. Randy Padawer, a consumer advocate with Lexington Law.  “The impact of unfair medical debt collections can destroy a family’s financial prospects. This federal study demonstrates just how pervasive the problem is.”

NCHS researchers based their findings upon a survey of more than 40,000 families across the United States.

“Unfortunately, medical bills are sometimes sent out for collections while the question of insurance responsibility is not yet resolved,” Padawer added. “This is why we developed a special medical focus track for our credit repair clients who have been burdened by these issues.”

Lexington Law offers five focus tracks personalized for life’s common credit stressors: medical expenses, divorce, student loan debt, identity theft, and military service.

Lexington Law’s specialized focus tracks provide better case management and personalized services.

“At Lexington Law, we do our best to provide assistance in accordance with the client’s specific needs,” Padawer added. “This level of case personalization allows us to leverage the unique circumstances that impact a person’s credit score.”
