Urgent Medical Bill Dilemma

Hi Everyone,

I am responsible for caring for my elderly relative, who is sick and in need of constant attention. As of late, the medical bills and procedures have significantly increased. Unfortunately, I am getting incredibly fatigued and frustrated. On top of all of this, I believe the medical bills of the individual are incorrect and more than what they should be.

I really don't have the time or energy to solve this. I was wondering if anyone knew of a respected company that could accurately find these mistakes and save me much needed money.

Thanks

Re: Urgent Medical Bill Dilemma

I'm sorry you're getting burnt out being a caregiver......that's not uncommon! Try to take some time for you.....if you can. Get someone to give you a break every so often. But as far as your question goes, I don't know of a service that would do that, there may be one but it would cost money. Why not just make a couple phone calls to them and see if you can resolve it yourself! I know it can be frustrating, but it might be easier and less stressful than you think.

Don't know about doctor bills but most hospitals have a patient ombudsman or representative of some sort who could help with this for the hospital bills. And the person's insurance company -esp if it's Medicare- should be able to help sort it out as well.
