Some errors and overcharges are so outrageous they’re amusing to read about - unless they appear on your own bill.
• Billed for circumcision of a baby girl
• A man charged for time in the labor/delivery room
• $400 charge for something listed as “unknown” or “miscellaneous”
• And perhaps most astounding of all, a toothbrush billed at $1,004.50
Not so shocking...insurance companies paid for all of these errors yet we’ve seen claims for heart surgery rejected for no justifiable reason.
