Hospital Bill Settlement

December 26th, 2013 at 11:13 am

I got a call last week from a collection agency about a bill for DD. After some investigation, I figured out that it is for her physical therapy. Even though I paid a copay while there, the insurance still put some of it toward the deductible. I called today to pay the bill and asked them for discount in order to get this taken care of by the end of the year. She said they could do the 20% discount. I asked if that was the best they could do. She went and asked her supervisor and I was given an additional 10%. So a $445 bill became $311. I was going to try to get them to $300 so I am happy with that number. And the bill is paid.

I read an article in Readers Digest about dealing with debt collectors and asking for discounts. Sure glad I saw that!
