Big Medical Bills - experts say almost all are wrong (video)

If you find yourself on the wrong end of a huge, massive medical bill, then you need to checkout this CBS News video, "Truth About Hospital Bills." There's also an accompanying article you can read. Here's what I find so interesting from it . . .

  1. Millions of "balance bills" sent to patients these days are either illegal - or they are highly inflated.
  2. Two billing investigators cited in the video say that overbilling is now the norm.
  3. Be sure to get an itemized bill, scrutinize and question every single charge, and dispute overcharges with the hospital.
  4. You might want to consider getting help by hiring a billing advocate.
  5. Consider complaining to the Attorney General
