(PRWEB) August 29, 2013

Lexington Law, the nation’s premier consumer credit report repair service, hosted its second successful TweetChat. The live event, titled “Why Have Medical Bills Ruined My Life?” focused on medical debt and witnessed an 18 percent engagement increase from its inaugural predecessor.

Participants could submit questions by following @LexingtonLaw and using the hashtag #LexChat or by privately submitting questions via Facebook or by email. Lexington Law’s Dr. Randy Padawer touched on medical debt facts and tips throughout the TweetChat. Topics ranged from insurance-related ER trips to HIPAA to medical debt collection.

Dr. Randy Padawer, a psychologist and consumer advocate, led the TweetChat. Padawer has been published in the Journal of Personality Assessment, the Journal of Consulting and featured in Smart Money Magazine. He co-wrote the best-selling “FICO 850” seminar for The Motley Fool and founded the company that would become AOL Classifieds in 1993. Padawer works with Lexington Law concerning consumer behavior, credit scoring, and intervention efficacy.

Much of the advice and discussion started from specific questions and comments sent to #LexChat. Lexington Law would comment directly to that query and in doing so indirectly assist those who may have a similar question. The firm expanded upon questions and answers by providing their own insights and advice for consumers.

Consumers chose the topic in June by voting online a few weeks before the scheduled chat. Of the 2,702 survey participants, 1,492 selected medical bills as the overwhelming preference. Held on Friday, July 26, this latest TweetChat saw 3,527 engagements and 264 thousand impressions. The inaugural TweetChat in both industry and Lexington Law history was held on May 31.
