I’m Trying to Get Rid of Medical Debts. – Kim

“Dear Steve,

Hi, I recently been trying to raise my credit score. I have fair credit; my issue is getting rid of medical bills that’s my main issue. iI am 41 yo and my debt is $7,000 in 95% being medical. Can you help me sort this out? Thank You.


Dear Kim,

The best way to tackle the debts you know about is to use the debt snowball approach. Follow the link for more information on debt snowball.

Once you start paying off the smallest debts then I think you should take a look at your credit score. You can order your credit score online and it will specifically tell you what other issues might be bringing down your score. Knowing that you can then address those issues.

This is not going to be complicated to deal with, just take some time.

Please update me on your progress by posting updates here in the comments section of your question. I’m very interested in how this works out for you.


You are not alone. I'm here to help. There is no need to suffer in silence. We can get through this. Tomorrow can be better than today. Don't give up.
