Warnings About Medical Bills

Medical bills can suck up tremendous amounts of money in a case in certain situations.

Las Vegas Emergency Room doctors bill separately and often charge between $1,000 and $2,000. They seem to deliberately refuse to submit their bills to applicable insurance which will cut their bills enormously. If you have insurance you must demand that your insurance pay all medical bills. Even if you have insurance, ambulance bills usually get hardly any discounts. Don’t take an ambulance to the hospital unless it is really necessary. If it is not necessary, the ambulance bill will likely detract from the value of your case unless you have a high limit med pay coverage on your own auto. You should never buy prescription medication on a lien; the pharmacy will jack up the cost of the prescription several times what it would be on a cash pay basis.
