LearnToLead

The first thing to after you receive a medical bill that is unexpected or seems high is contact the sender and request an itemized bill, with billing codes. All of your options for handling unexpected bills are detailed in Lower Your Healthcare Bills and Medical Bill Financial Help.

Once you have an itemized bill, there are multiple paths to lowering and eliminating the bill. Pathways include;

  1. Finding mistakes.
  2. Disputing the charges.
  3. Applying for charitable care.
  4. Appealing for insurance coverage.
  5. Negotiating payment discounts and plans.
  6. Public Funding

There are also free medical bill review and advocacy services available.
