The NY Senate just passed the Fair Medical Debt Reporting Act (S4907A/A6275A), an important step toward protecting patients from the long-term consequences of medical debt.
This bill would prohibit medical debt from being collected by a consumer reporting agency or included in a consumer report. Now we need your help urging the NY Assembly to follow the Senate’s lead and pass the Fair Medical Debt Reporting Act (S4907A/A6275A).
One patient who shared his story with us, David S., had his credit score slashed in half due to medical debt. This means he can no longer buy trucks for his towing business, his main source of income.
David’s story is only one of many. We can’t allow this to keep happening — New Yorkers deserve better. Please take action with us today to protect patients!
