How to Prevent Billing and Insurance Problems After a Hospital Stay


Five Useful Tips

  1. Carefully read every bill. Do not assume that your insurance plan will take care of this for you!


  1. Always record the name and phone number of any insurance or hospital billing person you speak to.


  1. Read and review your insurance benefits.


  1. Keep all invoices, receipts, and bills in chronological order in case you need to refer back to them in the future.


  1. If you notice a billing problem or do not understand the bill, call immediately!


Insurance plans often have strict guidelines as to when a resolution can be made on claims. The maximum length of time is usually 120 days from the date of service.
