If you’ve received any type of healthcare treatment in your lifetime, you know the drill. You visit the doc, you get the procedure and then comes the bill. Really, you have no idea how much any of it is going to cost until you see that dreaded statement and how they came to the final amount is an even bigger mystery. So what are some of the items often seen on a billing statement?
The answer (like many things in healthcare): it’s complicated. There are many key factors that can appear on your bill or contribute to the final amount due. If you’re looking to keep healthcare costs low, familiarize yourself with what goes into your medical bill, research costs beforehand, and—importantly—talk to your doctor about what you find.
