Savings Tip #7: Scrutinize Your Bills

My last tip to save money on healthcare and fitness is to be super diligent about reviewing your medical bills. If you don’t understand a charge, don’t pay it until the medical provider and your insurance company can explain why you owe it. Claims can be denied due to administrative or coding errors. It’s not uncommon for medical bills to contain errors—and they rarely work in your favor. If you’re having trouble fighting an incorrect bill, get help from a claims specialist. Use a site like Claims.org to find a professional who will help you deal with the insurer, doctor, and file an appeal if necessary.
