How to Find Errors in Your Medical Bills
Now that you know what to do when receiving your medical bill, here is what to look for when analyzing the bill for errors.
1. Spelling mistakes and inaccuracies:
Check your bill for any misspellings. Look at your name, doctor’s name, date of service, and whether your health insurance provider is up to date. Even minor misspellings can trigger problems with the insurance provider.
2. List of services
Check all the itemized services that are listed. Make sure that all the services listed are the ones that you received. If you do not see a service listed, contact your doctor right away.
3. Common errors
Check for double charging of a service. If you see a service listed that you do not recognize, contact your doctor. Every service listed should come with a Current Procedural Testimony billing code. These codes are the same for every provider and facility.
4. Look into the units section.
Usually, there is a units section that says how much of a given treatment you received. If one of the units looks higher than another, contact your doctor to verify these claims.
