Complex medical bills can make your eyes glaze over. Still, it’s important to review your paperwork and understand what you’re being charged for — because mistakes do happen. Although unfamiliar terms and codes make errors harder to spot, a little confidence and a few smart tips can help you catch them.
Learning about the billing process and the most common errors can help you feel more in control—and avoid overpaying.
Clear your table and sit down with your bill. If you have an EOB, keep it handy and use it to double-check all the information on the bill.
When your medical bill comes, take the time to review it. It’s your money, and you have a right to know where it’s going. Don’t be afraid to question charges or terms with your doctor’s office. Spending a few minutes to get familiar with your bill can save you money.
