Pull out your scalpels, we’re going to dissect some medical bills
Friends and colleagues have been bringing me bills lately, asking, can you explain this? Why, they ask, is what my doctor or the hospital charges so much more than what they are paid? What happens to the difference? How do the codes fit the treatment I received?
We’re going to take some of your bills or EOBs and dissect them to answer the general questions above and some more specific ones as well.
So send in your bills! You can scan and post them here or send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can cover an information you want to keep private.
