Medical Bill Review
Because medical billing errors have become commonplace, experts recommend not paying a medical bill unless the information on the bill is understood. IKOR of Charlottesville has the necessary expertise to understand your insurance company’s explanation of benefits or Medicare’s coverage, ensuring your bill is error-free and you are not being overcharged.
Should we find errors, we can work with the biller on your behalf to correct the error.
Surveys routinely find consumers don’t understand their insurance benefits and are likely leaving money on the table, or paying for medical services their insurance should cover. IKOR of Charlottesville’s Personal Needs Coordinators are skilled at reviewing insurance policy coverage and explanation of benefits to ensure a beneficiary is receiving the benefits they are due.
Our Personal Needs Coordinators also understand government benefits. They can help guide you through the application process and the appeals process or recommend expert assistance should you have a complex case.
Our team of life care managers includes highly experienced Registered Nurse Advocates and geriatric care managers.
