Millions of people struggle to pay their medical bills. According to a study by HealthAffairs.org, one in six Americans has past-due health care bills on their credit report, totaling $81 billion. In a country that spends nearly 18 percent of its gross domestic product on health care spending, we can all relate to the stress and anxiety caused by expensive medical bills.
Luckily, both federal and state law requires hospitals to lower some patients’ out-of-pocket expenses. However, hospitals do not follow these laws and ignore patients when they raise concerns about their medical bills. Struggling patients are unaware of the steps and procedures to reduce expensive medical bills. That is why it is imperative to contact an experienced medical bill attorney.
