How to Survive Your Medical Bills

At times, dealing with medical bills seems almost as bad as being sick. Some people avoid seeking healthcare due to concerns about the out-of-pocket costs. Others are unable to take medications or treatments as prescribed, because they are unaffordable. To add to these concerns, when the bills and the explanation of benefits arrive, it can be a challenge to figure out what’s going on. Frequently, patients are receiving unexpected or “surprise” medical bills. Attend May’s Healthy Hints, to learn ways to help minimize medical expenses up front, and how to better handle the challenging paperwork. If bills begin mounting and medical debt becomes difficult to manage, you may be able to get some relief. Receive suggestions offered by billers and billing advocates to help reduce your medical bills, and better deal with creditors.
