Pay to know your medical history, and other nonsense

November 23rd, 2011 at 09:38 am


Just a little bit of a rant today everyone.

I will never understand why our credit scores are not free, and even though we get ONE free credit report from each company a year, why cant we check them for free whenever we choose?

We are constantly be judged for these things, but we are never allowed to see them, unless we pay. If the records are about us, and are being used against us, shouldn't we have access to those records? Even in court, if one side comes up with new evidence against the other person, they HAVE to show the other person before using it against them in court.

Also, we should all take measures against identity theft, but if someone steals your info, they could be messing up your credit, without you even knowing. Shouldn't we have access to these records for free to better protect ourselves?

This isn't really about saving money, but then again it is, when you shouldn't be paying for something that is concerning you. You don't pay view your medical files, you don't pay to view your child's grades in school, you don't pay to view your bills, or your bank statement, why should your credit be any different?


I would love to hear you comments on this below.

    Some of us are prohibited by law from having access to our own family medical history.

    You can use Credit Karma to calculate your credit scores for free. It isn't quite the same, but it is very close.

    Only two words from me, I agree.

    Thanks Amber

    Yeah it's pretty silly when you have to pay for your own info.

    I would not put it past insurance companies trying to make people pay for health information in the future, but at least for now we can access it. Banks are taking the lead on trying to charge people for everything possible (and look at the backlash felt by BofA!). Your question really is a good one...
