Has there been a recent change in the relationship between medical debt and your credit rating/score?

During a recent discussion about articles like this one
, my friend told me that it used to be that a person with outstanding medical bills could be harassed by collection agencies, but that one's credit score would not be negatively affected by outstanding or unpaid medical bills.
Has there been a recent change in law or policy they may be referring to? Does anyone know anything about the veracity of such a claim?
