A-fordable Billing Solution, a medical, mental health, and substance abuse treatment billing assistance company, expresses appreciation for Oregon Senator, Jeff Merkley’s legislation focused on helping those with medical debt.
Pasadena, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/18/2013 -- The Senator’s legislation titled the Medical Debt Responsibility Act will potentially help close to seventy-five million United States citizens by eliminating the effect medical debt has on someone’s credit score. Senator Merkley does not believe that the misfortune of an accident or illness, and subsequent financial burdens, should impact the individual’s mortgage payments or credit card interest charges.
As the law stands today, medical debt collections continue to negatively impact a person’s credit score, even after the balance of the debt has been paid off. Buying a home, applying for and being approved for a credit card, and applying for a loan are extremely difficult when someone has had medical debt in the past.
The Medical Debt Responsibility Act will prohibit consumer credit agencies from using a person’s medical debt as a factor in determining that individual’s available credit amounts. Additionally, the Act requires elimination of medical debt from someone’s credit record within 45 days of the person making the final debt payment.
