Negotiate Medial Bills

Have you ever been extremely overwhelmed by the stack of medical bills that just seems to keep piling up on your kitchen counter?

Most of the time, when the doctor’s office or hospital runs your medical claim through your health insurance, you’re going to get a contractual discount on services.

But what if we told you that these medical bills could possibly be negotiated with your provider even further?

Yep, it’s #true!

So, the next time you have a stack of medical bills that’s causing you to #panic, reach for some #peace by following these steps:

  1. Call your provider’s billing department.
  2. Humanize the situation and tell them why you need more rate relief.
  3. Ask open-ended questions such as, what are my payment options? Are there any pay in full options with a discount? Is there a manager available? Is there a donation fund available to help fund my medical costs?

The name of the #negotiation #game is to ask a lot of questions! So, Give Clevenger Insurance a call today at 574-267-2181 so we can walk you through this process!
