Overcharged? Need a medical bill reviewed?
Did you know that 8 out of 10 medical bills have errors?
QUESTION: Why is it when we leave the grocery store we check our receipts?
ANSWER: We are checking to make sure that we have not been overcharged. We think that the clerk might have mistakenly scanned an item twice.
In healthcare, the same possibilities exist; the possibility of being overcharged and that opportunity of checking for that overcharge. Sadly, we typically are overcharged, yet we rarely take advantage of the opportunity to check the bill for overcharges. The fact of the matter is that we are more likely to be overcharged in the hospital than in the grocery line. MedAdvo can get in line and check your receipt. We root out inflation, overcharges, and other mistakes.
Ever received a bill for any type of service and the costs were more than expected?
In scenarios such as these, you can decide not accept the product. Healthcare is no different. Just like any other product, the cost for healthcare services can be more than expected. The problem is that the patient has no means to determine if the bill is unreasonable. That patient just knows it does not feel right and is resigned to buyer’s remorse. Remorse no more! MedAdvo can review your costs and determine the reasonableness of medical bills.
Do the charges for your services seem high? Do you need expert knowledge of spotting errors? Is there information missing or difficult to understand?
Are you aware that accuracy is healthcare’s # 1 challenge? In fact, 8 out of 10 medical bills contain errors.
You cannot take the chance and assume that you are one of the 20% that gets an accurate bill. Sometimes you just need to know. If you are in the 80% that get an inaccurate bill, you could lose hundreds and maybe thousands of dollars. Contact MedAdvo; we will review your bill for accuracy and give you the reassurance that you deserve.
Surprise, Outrage, and Disbelief are all normal emotions after you discover your claim has been underpaid or not paid at all.

Either for an individual or for an attorney serving as a personal injury lawyer, spotting medical bill errors might be tough. Although billing errors result from common human mistakes, one single case might cause you to pay serious amounts of money out of your pocket.
A statistical analysis by Medicare has found that an average of 49% of medical bills contains errors, and also that some hospitals have more than 80% claims of errors to Medicare. A report by Financial Protection Bureau has also revealed that 52% of all the debt on credit reports is caused by medical bills.
So, if you are an attorney having a client complaining about medical overcharges, it might be difficult and really time consuming for you to spot each and every medical service that your client has received. A billing statement contains standardized numerical “CPT” codes to categorize treatments. The code can be Googled to find out what it stands for. Instead, you might ask for an itemized statement from the medical service provider, which gives a clearer view of the treatments and their costs and then immediately call MedAdvo for a complimentary review.
Yet, there are several steps to find the errors in the statement sheets which may require further investigation for some particular key reason for the billing errors. This analysis requires time and costs money and likely will cause the dispute to carry on for a longer period of time and here is where MedAdvo comes in.

Causes of medical billing errors are categorized into the following two main groups:
• Billing errors: In the USA, an average of up to 80% of the medical bills contains errors resulting from common humanly mistakes.
