Hospital Stay? Don’t Get Overcharged

A survey by Medical Billing Advocates of America shows that 8 of 10 hospital bills are not accurate and can boost costs by an average of 25%.

How can you avoid being overcharged or double billed? Keep track of tests and medicines received. Get your medical file from the hospital billing office, checking the bill against tests and medications. If you discover an error, contact the billing office, in writing.
