BCBS Informative - Don't yield to uncovered hospital bills
DALLAS, TEXAS -- I had $529.00 as a part of my wife's hospital bills. That wasn't covered due to coder error. I had to cross check and synchronize insurance company and hospital (Baylor's) numerous times. Hospital just won't give me enough information to talk with insurance co. and same with the insurance co. (because they are the one suffering, if it gets sorted out). Seemed like some sort of collaboration between them! Took me 8 months to sort it out. There were times when I thought to just pay it off and get out of the mess!! After talking for months over the phone, one lady (Adriana) agreed to change the code of the service received, and insurance co. paid the bill. Atlast, I was relieved. Please stick to it, if you think you are correct and it will pay off. For sure.
