The Nevada Legislature enacted a new law targeting medical debt collections. The new law takes effect on July 1, 2021. The law defines a “medical debt” broadly to include financing or extension of credit if the sole purpose for the credit is to purchase goods or services from a health care facility or provider.
The new law prohibits debt collectors from taking any action to collect a medical debt for the first 60 days. During this period, the collector must send the consumer a written notification by registered or certified mail that includes the name of the medical facility, the date of service, the principal amount of the debt, the collection agency’s name, and whether the agency purchased the debt or it is collecting it on behalf of the medical provider.
The collection agency may accept voluntary payments during the 60-day notice period only if the consumer initiates the contact and the collection agency tells the debtor that they are not required to pay during the notice period and that it will not report the debt to the credit agencies. The law does not provide the delivery method for this notice. If a consumer chooses to make a voluntary payment toward the medical debt, such a payment does not extend the statute of limitations, admit liability, or waive any defense to the debt.
Finally, under the new law, debt collectors may not take confessions of judgment, file civil lawsuits for less than $10,000, or charge collection fees of more than 5% of the debt.
If you face medical collections, you should discuss your legal rights with a Las Vegas debt collection lawyer to ensure you are protected.

What can I say; I’m really impressed with their service. After using ovation for a while without any impact, I decided to give JERRYLINK CREDIT GROUP a try. I’m blown away with their service! I can’t believe they deleted all my collections and raised my credit score. I’m at 780 credit score and I applied for a credit card which was approved with a credit line of $5k and our dream of owning a house will come true soon. Before this, I’ve never had a credit card limit higher than $300.I strongly recommend their services. You can reach out to them via JERRYLINKGROUP@GMAIL.COM

What more can I say than a sincere appreciation to KENSTAR CYBER SERVICES haven fixed my credit just when I thought I had no chances of a better credit score considering my situation then. I had a car loan that shows a repo, credit score (486 TransUnion and 512 Equifax), student loans, late payment and collections for a total of 3 accounts for decades that never go away, and hard inquiries when I was trying to get approval for car loan. Few days after I subscribed to the services of this credit specialist having contacted him on KENSTARCYBERSERVICES@GMAIL.COM, my score jumped to (752 TransUnion, 769 Equifax), hard inquiries, student loans, car loans and late payments all disputed successfully, 2 positive trade lines were also added to my credit report. All these I confirmed after receiving an updated copy of my credit report.
