Your unpaid medical bills will not be reported to credit bureaus until sent to a collection agency. As long as they remain with the provider, the unpaid balance is just that, an unpaid balance. However, some interest rates may apply, depending on the state that you are in, so that balance could change.
Unpaid medical bills are on your credit score until they are settled with the company that issued the bills or written off of the credit report. This could be for many years if you are making payments on the account or might end more quickly if you have declared bankruptcy.

Yes ... the credit bureau only "sees" unpaid debt ... it does not determine who is owed or how the unpaid debt was incurred. You should be writing to the credit bureau's and explain the situation - they may drop the reported unpaid bill, but will not forgive the debt still owed ... that still needs to be paid back to the medical institution as soon as possible, as they are a business and rely upon money (income) to pay their bills and staff.
Yes. Some institutions/businesses do not report to credit bureaus. The debt not being placed on a credit report does not mean it is not completely valid and collectible.
How do I report an unpaid bill to a credit bureau?
Yes. The medical provider can report these to the credit agencies. yes it does, but if you try to make an effort for a payment plan and keep it up most likely they wont submit it collections. I've notice they do give you much more time than 30 days before reporting it , and some don't. Just work with them or if its to large to handle you might want to consider BK. Without credit, there's no future growth.
It depends on the type of job you are looking for. Not all jobs run credit reports on potential employees. Jobs in the insurance industry and financial related jobs usually require a credit check. If you are applying for a job like that then it can have an effect on you getting the job.
