Title:
How to Get a Clear Understanding of What I am Paying For
Description:
Scenario: You or a family member has a medical procedure or treatment at your local hospital which requires a hospital stay. Ugh - three weeks later the bills start arriving from the doctor, hospital, labs, radiology, etc. How are you supposed to know if the charges are correct, or worse yet, if treatment payment is denied. Frustration... Worry... Confusion. After 25 years working in the medical cost containment industry, our guest, Ginny Capone, has an acute understanding of the needs of patients with a wide variety of complex medical conditions. She has extensive knowledge of the cost of medical treatment, available cost alternatives and strategies to reduce patients’ out-of-pocket obligations. Ginny will help us understand and identify what we are paying for and, if there are billing errors or if insurance claims are denied, what we can do about it.
