Check Your Doctor’s Bill. Consumers Facing Rise in Medical Billing Errors

Who hasn’t looked at a doctor’s bill or hospital bill and said, “That can’t be right!” Well, it probably isn’t right!

Medical Billing Advocates of America (MBAA) warns that coding errors, confusion over in and out of network providers, and high-deductible health plans are common problems in over-billing cases.
