Show Notes

The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Comprehensive Debt Collection Improvement Act, H.R. 2547, May 13, mostly along party lines, which means the U.S. Senate could now consider the bill with extensive reforms to debt collection. 

In this episode of ACA Cast, Scott Purcell, president of ACA International, and president of Professional Credit Service, and Tim Myers, president of business development Clark County Collection Service LLC, and president of the Nevada Collectors Association, share their insights on the problematic components of this legislation related to medical debt and how ACA members can get involved in advocacy and educating lawmakers about the impact of the bill on businesses and health care provider clients.
