Dave joined us to discuss how TransUnion Teams to Reduce Medical Debt with RIP Medical Debt.  Specifically, we discussed the following with Dave:

  2. (4:56) How will TransUnion’s solution help RIP evaluate the portfolios of debt they own and how will it help them locate new medical debt?
  3. (7:02) How will credit data be used to identify those who truly need help with medical debt?
  4. (7:52) What should healthcare professionals/hospitals be doing to help alleviate this massive problem?
  5. (9:21) Why aren’t more people scared as hell about where we are and where we are headed?
  6. (11:22) What would you like our listeners to remember about what TransUnion Healthcare is doing about this problem?
