December 4, 2009, Newsletter Issue #208: Erroneous Charges

Tip of the Week

This could be a $90 charge for a 70-cent I.V or $129 for a “mucous recovery system” (otherwise known as a box of Kleenex). On the other hand, don’t forget to look at erroneous charges such as “surgical supplies.” Be sure you understand what was included. For example, did this include the stapler and suture clip that you were billed separately on your bill? Keep in mind that items in a surgical kit are sterile, so only a few items in the kit may have been used (which is legitimate), but were tossed after the kit was open because it was not considered sterile anymore
