Medical Bill Negotiation Services

The Healthcare Bluebook recommends that you talk with your provider if you can’t pay your bill or you believe the charges are too high. You can find tips to help you discuss your medical bill with your provider here.

There are some situations in which you may want to work with a company that specializes in negotiating a reduction in your medical bills for you. These situations may include instances where:

  • You contacted your provider and tried to get a reduction, but did not receive a fair offer from your provider.
  • You do not understand your medical bill and believe there may be mistakes.
  • You are unwilling or otherwise unable to discuss your bill with your provider.

If you decide to work with a medical bill negotiation company, we recommend the following:

  • Ensure the company has a good reputation and experience
  • Don’t pay any fees upfront. You should only pay a fee if the company is successful in reducing your medical bill.
  • Ensure the company negotiating on your behalf receives a signed document from the provider that outlines the new, reduced medical bill (often called a release) PRIOR to receiving services

The Healthcare Bluebook has partnered with two organizations that provide medical bill negotiation services for our users. The bill negotiation companies will review and negotiate your bill of $200 or more for free. You will pay a percentage of the amount they save for you, but only if they are successful at reducing your bill.
