New York Medical Bill Assistance

Costs in New York are already high, especially if you live in or near the City. Medical bills are no exception to this rule.

As if costs were not high enough, consider that some 80% of hospital bills contain errors. That statistic was reported by Medical Billing Advocates of America. This trade association represents medical billing advocates who negotiate discounts on your medical bills so that you can reduce costs. The following are member companies:

  • New York: Medical Bill Expert, Call 646-300-9751
  • New York: Medical Bill Navigators, LLC, Call 212-465-8557
  • New York: Medical Bill Reviewers of America, Call 917-567-5755

Anyone on an 80/20 coinsurance plan can tell you that any reduction is costs is welcome. Just a drop of $2,000 in your bills could save you $400.

Getting the costs lowered is only one step. You still have to find a way to pay for the remainder of your medical bill balances.
