Read the following article to find out important points how to avoid surprise and reduce medical expenses
Consumer Reports is providing a special program in California to help people compare the costs of various medical procedures across the state to help them avoid surprise medical bills.
Insurance companies and hospitals make it confusing to know how much you’ll owe, so Consumer Reports is offering a program on how to avoid surprise medical bills.
Eric Christensen had shoulder surgery this year and he thought everything would be completely covered by his insurance. “A couple months after the surgery, I received a bill,” he said.
That surprise bill was for over $2,000 and a new survey from Consumer Reports found Christensen isn’t alone. “In our survey, we found that one third of Americans got a bill where they had to pay more than they expected for their medical costs. The key to not being caught off guard is to know how much you’ll pay before you go in,” Consumer Reports Health Ratings Center spokesperson Doris Peter said.
