Merchants & Medical Credit Corporation was founded in 1960, as a corporation in the State of Michigan. We have grown from our humble beginnings of two collectors to a multifaceted collection agency serving numerous local, state and nationally based clients with a staff of over 100 employees utilizing state of the art collection technically.

Merchants & Medical Credit Corporation continues to grow in our 55 year history as we find a strong demand for a quality orientated agency that liquidates accounts at a high percentage while maintaining a professional relationship with the consumer.

Although we are a national agency licensed and/or bonded in all 50 states, Merchants & Medical Credit Corporation does not maintain branch offices. All collection efforts are concentrated in our Flint, Michigan location. This allows for greater internal control of accounts, due diligence, and compliance. 

Merchants & Medical Credit Corporation recognizes that we are collecting funds on behalf of our clients. We understand that you rely on us to deliver results while maintaining your community image. Our goal is to effectively and efficiently assist students with resolving their obligation, while negotiating an outcome that benefits everyone.  Merchants & Medical Credit Corporation is a leader in student account recovery. We attribute this high level of success to our unsurpassed 55 years of experience in collections, our Financial Counselors extensive training, our strong grasp of technology, and our quality student relations.
