Medical Debt Could Raise FICO Credit Score
Aug. 08, 2014
(Undated) -- People with heavy medical debts could see their credit scores go up. The nation's top credit score provider, FICO, is coming out with a new scoring model that doesn't penalize people for medical debts. FICO says people who have only unpaid medical debts on their credit reports will see their score go up by about 25 points.
