Unpaid debts can have a detrimental impact on the future financial stability of consumers in Ohio. A scarred credit score can jeopardize a person's ability to obtain a mortgage, get financing for a car or rent accommodation. In many cases, the source of the debt is unanticipated medical debts, and, fortunately, there are manners in which the debt can be reduced, or it may even be possible to get it discharged in personal bankruptcy.
It is not uncommon for medical bills to have errors that can be substantial. Some mistakes are easy to spot, such as duplicate charges, but others may need the eye of a professional to audit complicated medical bills. Once errors are identified, a call to the facility's accounts office may result in a significant drop in the owed amount.
