  • No I don't. I mean it sucks, but they are still bills. If you don't have insurance and the Drs. are doing their job to treat you, they deserve to get paid.

    That honestly isn't that much for medical bills, try paying them off piece by piece...

  • A medical bill is a financial obligation just like any other bill. You don't pay it, it gets reported on your report. And $1,400 really isn't that much when it comes to medical expenses. Can you pay them off little by little like PP says?

  • Nope, it's money you owe, it's a bill. don't pay it, you get in trouble for it, just like a credit card. I have money I owe for an ultrasound with my first that's affecting my credit report, I don't think it's unfair. it's annoying, yes. but i don't think it's unfair.
