Good afternoon. Yes, hospital bills can be placed on a credit report even if part of a pending lawsuit. Under the Fair Credit
Act outstanding bills, can placed on a credit report, even if there is a pending lawsuit. If you have an attorney for the pending action they could write a letter to the agency and ask that they remove the bills until the lawsuit is settled. However, this is up to the collection agency itself, and under the current law they cannot be forced to do that. It's just an option to try.
