Help needed to pay off past due medical bills

Hi there. Back in 2019, I was cut off of insurance due to moving after open enrollment closed. As a result, I was unable to obtain eligibility for Medicaid. I struggled with asthma at the time, and as a result, relied on the hospital and ambulance rides to treat it before I could see a doctor. Being uninsured, these medical bills ranged in the hundred dollars to thousands, which has now dropped my credit score to 550. To this day, I still receive bills from the ambulance and collections agencies. While the hospitals have paid a portion, they were not able to cover the full sum, and as a result, I’ve been left with a mess that is difficult to clean up. I am 23 and have never known what it is like to have a functioning credit score. While I work, I also have to provide for my chronically ill girlfriend and other important needs, which has lead to this being difficult to give money towards. Any help is appreciated, especially during these difficult times. Thank you so much for reading.
