So lenders (banks) will have to make uninformed decisions. Then the government will have to bail out the banks.

And people will just stop paying medical bills unless they have attachable assets.

This is just another "loan bailout" to buy votes. And it will increase the load on those who are responsible.

Besides, how can there be any medical debt after ObamaCare?

Jeez.....Who do I short on this one to make money?
 
Not really a new thing....


The major credit bureaus recently enacted significant changes in reporting medical debt in collections. In July 2022, the credit bureaus removed paid medical collections from credit reports and stopped reporting unpaid medical collections until those debts were one year old, as opposed to the previous six-month grace period. In August 2022, it was announced that medical debt in collections would no longer be used in calculating Vantage scores, one of the country’s most used credit scoring models. In addition, after April 2023, medical collections under $500 would no longer appear on consumer credit reports.
 
I would have far preferred he addressed the reason for such medical debt.

There is little the Govt can do about such things.

My daughter had a 5 week period between jobs at the start of this year. She just happened to develop a kidney stone 10 days before starting her new job, an ER visit and stone removal and her bills added up to more than 10 grand for about 3 hours in the ER.

She will eventually pay it off, we told her to just set up a plan an pay it off slowly.

Utterly ridiculous prices.
 
Our entire credit reporting system is such a scam.

The power over our lives we give these private companies is just stupid.

There is very little in your life that the credit score does not impact.
 
This isn't going to "improve" anyone's chances to borrow money for a home or car at all.

Banks will just require more collateral and cosigners and be more reluctant to loan money to people without such guarantees.

Someone who robs a hospital stands a lot better chance of cheating other creditors.

Free shit!

Man, this election, with two free-shit heroes running, we're going to make out like bandits!

Odd that people in most every other first world country doesn't have this issue then.

She should have been covered. 10K for 3 hours in an ER should also be criminal.

I should have said other than offering universal healthcare there is little the Govt can do.

And Biden, nor the Dems can do that without the help of the GOP

No arguments from me

They had the numbers. They gave health care away to the Pharmaceutical and Insurance industries and here we are.

Credit reporting companies have already been dropping much of medical debt even before Biden did this.

They have found very little correlation between medical debt and defaulting on any other debt.
 
I am not sure how this is "free shit".
Writing off debt? Or, rather, the repercussions of ignoring debt? They'll just find other ways to recoup that money, ways the rest of us will ultimately pay for. It's just buying more votes.

if it's a plan doesn't show up as a scheduled debt as opposed to an unpaid one?
