WalletHub Study: 2022’s Cities Benefiting Most & Least From Medical-Debt Credit Report Changes

With recent changes by the credit bureaus expected to remove nearly 70% of medical collections debt tradelines from consumer credit reports, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on the Cities Benefiting Most & Least From Medical-Debt Credit Report Changes, as well as accompanying videos.

To identify where Americans are benefiting the most and least from the new medical-debt credit report changes, WalletHub compared more than 180 U.S. cities across four key metrics using TransUnion data. Our data set ranges from the share of people with medical-collections debt balances under $500 to the share of people with medical debt less than one year old.
