Overcharges in the healthcare billing system are rampant. It is bad enough having to deal with the worry and concern of the health issues that brought you to the point of needing to seek help from the medical community in the first place, but to have to wade through the seemingly endless charges, codes, and medical terminology, make it a much harder ordeal than it has to be.
Most of us have been there. I know I have. Whether the situation is a short-term procedure, or a long bout with an illness, the charges from multiple doctors, facilities, and drugs quickly rack up. Not to mention that the multi page bills received filled with complex medical terminology, can all begin to look like greek to you!
Medical providers overcharge almost everyone in the United States. It can be nearly impossible to wade through the many bills you as a patient will receive. Remedy is a company that works as an advocate on behalf of you as the patient:
– Remedy helps people save money by auditing medical bills for errors and savings.
– Remedy then fights on people’s behalf with the provider.
– Remedy is free to try; they only make money when they save you money.
Remedy seeks to reduce medical bill overcharges by reviewing your bills for errors, they then advocate for you with the medical provider to reduce your bill.
They charge a fee equal to 20% of what they save you, with a cap of $99, resulting in a win-win for everyone. If they don’t save you money there is no charge.
Remedy finds finds mistakes on 70% of the medical bills submitted to them for review. They save the average family $1000 per year!
It would be hard not to utilize this service when there is a cap of only $99. I can remember when my 12 year old son had surgery done on his heart. The medical bills were astronomical, and quite frankly, I never bothered to comb through them to find out exactly what I was charged for and what I wasn’t. Looking back on it, I would have paid double the amount of Remedy’s cap if it would have meant saving us money.
Remedy’s website also features a blog page where they offer information pertaining to the medical care sytem, and the various ins & outs of that world so you can stay an informed and pro-active partner in the medical benefits available to you as a patient.
There is information available on the Affordable Care Act, posts on how you can save money, and articles written to help you understand all the ways the medical care profession overcharges patients on a regular basis.
Personal testimonies from actual customers, as well as in depth, informative articles written by professionals in the medical benefit/advocacy field can also be found at the blog site.
All in all, I found this to be a fairly impressive service. If and when I find myself in the position of having to pay for a complicated medical procedure, I will definitely look into Remedy to help save me money, and navigate the choppy waters of the medical billing system!
