Care Share: The do’s and don’ts of paying medical bills

Before you pay another bill consider 1. If you receive a bill showing an amount owed, double check to see if your insurance has been billed first before you pay anything. 2. If you received multiple services in hospital ask for an itemized bill. If you see something that doesn’t add up, call your provider right away. Also if you see something you don’t understand, call provider for help. 3. If the medical services you received were due to an accident make sure the primary insurance is billed first. Often, if Medicare gets billed they will pay the bill conditionally. If this happens, you could find out three years later they expect to be paid back, by then the motor vehicle claim has been long closed and you are left with thousands of dollars out of pocket. 4. Montana Senior Medicare Patrol can be used to help you check for errors and verify your insurance is billed correctly. If you find anything suspicious or incorrect and you think you have bills as a result of waste, fraud or abuse, please contact your local Senior Medicare Patrol office at 1-800-551-3191.
