A medical lien is a document, meaning it is a public document with the County Recorders Office indicating an outstanding medical bill that you must pay from your insurance settlement.
This doesn’t affect your credit score and it’s not reported to any credit bureaus.
A medical lien is reported to the insurance company for the at-fault party to ensure that the medical bill is paid from the settlement.
In order to be paid, a lien must be recorded timely and it must meet certain other legal criteria.
