Hospital charged me double !!!

Postby Matiur Rahman » Fri, 18 Jan 2013 5:31 am

Hello,
I am Matiur Rahman. I live in India. Few days ago my father had a operation. Estimated bill was 22k. After the operation my fathers condition was not stable . So we had too stay more in hospital. In the mean time the hospital bill got more then double. Around 50k. We didn't have any choice, so we signed the installment payment option. After coming back to our country we had a big loss in our business. We had to close our business. Now we don't have enough money too pay the hospital bills. So can any one please tell me what options do I have??
Thanks You.

Today I received a hospital bill for euro70k.

So, join the club.

Pay or be damned, that's my advice.

If you're angling for some easy get out: there isn't one. Pay your bills.

So you have a problem of hospital bill being miscalculated, or problem of being unable to pay the hospital bill?

unfortunately you've already agreed to an payment plan...

but better late than never:

request for a complete break down of your bill. go through the charges item by item and make sure every cent is accounted for. you may be able to reduce the bill a little by doing this.

you could also ask to speak to the doctors (if they were in private practice) and seek a discount on certain fees. the business/finance office will help you do this at the public hospital.

seek discounts and be sure you were not overcharged, whenever possible, prior to agreeing to the final sum due.

i guess the only thing you can do now is to figure out a new repayment plan...

p/s: your story is odd. your dad had an op a few days ago. you live in india but was (?) in singapore. and now your business folds. and you also managed to negotiate for an installment option and what not...

are you sure you posted this on the right forum? i'm sure your dad did not receive treatment without a substantial deposit...
