Can a medical debt go away if no one makes payments? My friend Ira is having sich a debt for about 2 years. Does she have to make payments anymore? What is the sttaus of it now? Can she get collection calls in the future?

Medical debt does not go away like that. Since the debt is more than two years old, so I guess it is with the debt collectors right now. Yes. She can get collection calls in the future. Usually, hospitals send medical bills to collections after 6 months.

Yes, your friend might get collection calls as the healthcare providers usually sell off the debt to a collection agency after it's 3 months past due. However, I would suggest her to check the statute of limitations in her state. If the debt has become time-barred, no need to worry. But if the debt has not crossed the SOL period, she will still owe the debt. And she might receive collection calls. If she needs help with paying off her debts, please ask her to call 800-DEBT-913.
