NHeLP Comments on Proposed Rule to Amend the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act

Executive Summary

In comments to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, NHeLP argues for stronger consumer protections during the debt collection process. Medical debt is a huge problem affecting millions of people, and aggressive collection of medical debt can cause people to restrict future health care use. And, regardless of the source of debt, aggressive debt collection harms health and serves little purpose other than harassing people into paying.
