I’ve been reading through these posts, and can tell you that there is another way to fix your medical bills, that I learned about by chance. There are a number of medical bill review companies that do this on a professional level, the best of which have professional medical and legal staff that review hospital and doctor bills for overcharges, double billing, phantom billing, and some believe, outright fraud. I was lucky and found a company called Medical Bill Rehab in Encino California that helped me with totally bogus overcharging for my emergency appendectomy. My charges came to over $19,000. By the time this company reviewed and negotiated everything, my out of pocket cost (I was uninsured last year) was $3726.00. Worth looking into. Also, I live in Northern Virginia, and my operation was at GWU hospital in Washington DC.
