When people have health insurance, they often think they don't need to care about medical billing, David Weinstein says.
Online PR News – 31-August-2011 – – When people have health insurance, they often think they don't need to care about medical billing, David Weinstein of Cherry Hills New Jersey says. People think their health insurance plan is responsible for the details, so they don't need to know how the plans work and whether or not they're getting the right coverage to meet their needs. This is the wrong approach, David Weinstein says, and he's trying to change people's minds.
Knowing about medical billing, David Weinstein says, can help you understand when you're responsible for paying for something. Some plans require you to pay upfront and get reimbursed later. Knowing how your plan works can help you avoid surprises at the checkout window. Additionally, knowing how medical billing works, David Weinstein says, can help you figure out how to maximize your benefits. Knowing when you can see a specialist and which specialists will be covered by your plan, for example, can help you get the care you need at the least amount of cost.
The health care reform debate makes this topic all the more important, David Weinstein says. Some proposed legislation may change the way medical billing works. Some legislation will allow you to see more doctors. While it's important for healthcare providers to understand the legislation so they can advise you, knowing the topics for yourself can help you make decisions on your own time. David Weinstein is holed up in his Cherry Hill, New Jersey office writing a book on this topic so people can get a clear picture of the issues and the changes to come.
In the meantime, David Weinstein encourages all people to read their health insurance plans carefully. Understand how medical billing works, and what charges you're responsible for. Call the medical billing office, David Weinstein says, if you don't understand something. Asking questions and doing careful study is never a waste of time when it comes to medical billing.
