Medical debt affects 1 in 5 Californians, and when it ends up on your credit report, that could mean challenges getting a loan, car, and even some jobs. We need a fair credit system that doesn’t penalize people for life events they can’t control, like getting sick. Tell your state lawmakers to support the removal of medical debt from credit reports.
