A visit to the hospital can be painful, for both your body and your wallet. Don’t let it be more painful than it has to be.

While rushing to the hospital, “ouch” is usually the upper most thought in your mind, rather than I wonder what the bill will look like.

Once you’re bandaged up, though, that hospital visit can sometimes come with a little bit of sticker shock.

Spending on health care rose 9.9% in the first quarter of 2014. Some of that spending increase may be due to billing errors.

One landmark study found that as many as 8 out of 10 hospital bills contain errors.

Errors can include billing twice for the same medications. Billing for extended operating room times, or up-coding. The practice of escalating your diagnosis code to a more serious condition.

Make sure you carefully review your bill when it arrives. If you can’t, or don’t have time, it’s possible to hire a billing advocate to review your bill for you.

These services typically cost anywhere from $75 to $130, or a percentage of the amount they save you.

If you do find any errors, report it to the hospital’s billing department, and also to your insurance provider.

A visit to the hospital can be painful, for both your body and your wallet. Don’t let it be more painful than it has to be.
