Will unpaid workers compensation medical bills ruin my credit?
Sometime seriously injured workers in California are concerned that the non-payment of medical bills by the workers compensation insurance company will adversely affect their credit. The short answer is that it can if you don't know the law.
Under California law, medical creditors can not pursue you directly for the non-payment of medical bills. If they harass or threaten to affect your credit you need to advise them of the law. If they continue to harass you then you have a potential legal action against them.
A good California workers compensation lawyer should be able to effectively shield you from being harassed by medical creditors. Unpaid medical bills related to your California workers compensation case should never affect your credit. Instead, medical creditors must seek payment through the Workers Compensation Appeals Board.
