I've always heard people say that it's important to look over your medical bills and make sure the Insurance company is paying what they should be but I never had enough bills to really worry about it and it seemed like a lot of work.
Well now I have medical bills. And with all my other prego friends out there, I know you do too so I wanted to just share a little story with you to make you aware of what you're paying for. My company has a couple different plans to choose from, and luckily I was choosing right after I found out I was pregnant so I was able to pay more attention to what would benefit me and the baby when I made my decision. I chose the plan with the best prenatal costs, obviously.
I got a bill in the mail about a month ago for my last visit which included a lab fee of $20.00 and WHAT? $67.00 for my prenatal visit? When I got to work the next day I double checked my benefit summary and I was right, prenatal visit's are $0. So I called the insurance company expecting a fight but they were really nice and the lady took car of it. I just got the NEW bill for $20.00. I'm so glad I called and I realized how much it really pays to look over your bills and make sure they're correct. Even Insurance company's make mistakes.
