Questions to Ask Before Paying Any Medical Bill
Medical billing errors can happen.
A single stay in the hospital can result in a bewildering array of bills covering a number of services and providers. Some statements may provide scant details to justify charges while others could include descriptions or codes that make little sense to the average person.
Billing mistakes could be the result of human error or even fraud, and knowing how to decipher a medical statement can be a money-saving skill. Before paying any medical bill, ask yourself the following questions:
Do I need an itemized bill?
Do I recognize all the charges?
Are the dates and providers correct?
How old is the bill?
Are there red flags indicating this is a medical billing scam?
Has my insurance been billed properly?
Did I get billed for an out-of-network provider?
