No. Overdue medical bills, like other debts incurred, can appear on a person's credit report, especially if they go into collections.

If the bills were overdue and you are making payments as the result of being 'dunned,' and the bills are not yet paid in full, it will reflect on your credit report.

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.

Like other late payments reported to a credit reporting agency, an unpaid medical bill may stay on a credit report for up to seven years.

Reportedly, buying trade lines is illegal. A trade line is something that will make a credit report look better. According to the Fair Credit Reporting Act, this is illegal.

An accounts payable aging report is a list of amounts owed to creditors (people you owe money to) and this list shows how overdue the debt is. The report tells you whether the debt is current, 30 days overdue, 60 days overdue, 90 days overdue,etc.

No, it is illegal, and if you are a victim of this, you can have it removed from your credit report by disputing it with the bureaus. After the statute of limitations is up on any trade line, it can not be placed back on your credit report.

Yes, this is only reported on your credit report if it is a collection account.

No. If the bill was incurred when you were a minor, then the bill is your parent's responsibility. It would be illegal to put it on your credit report.

Unless you work for an attorney or someone who can legally pull other's reports, it is illegal and not easy to pull another persons credit report. You can't legally do so.

Yep! If the ambulance company turns your account over to a collection agency that agency might report the collection on your credit. Medical collections are the most common type of collection on a credit report.

Yes. Your length of credit history alone can affect your credit score. Yes. A drop in your credit score does not indicate anything illegal.
