Medical Bill Auditing Topic of Free Educational Forum
HENDERSON, Nev.—The City of Henderson Senior Citizens Advisory Commission is hosting a free educational forum on medical billing auditing at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 16, at the Henderson Multigenerational Center, 250 S. Green Valley Pkwy. Participation is free. The forum will be presented by representatives from Universal Solutions, a division of Strategic Collection Management, a medical bill resolution advocate.
According to Universal Solutions, nearly 90 percent of all medical claims contain at least one error, but only 15 will ever be corrected. Forum participants will hear about medical bill overcharges, duplicate charges, and misapplied charges that cost patients $35 billion annually. Universal Solutions audits medical bills for a nominal fee and helps to resolve disputed charges.
The Henderson Senior Citizens Advisory Commission is comprised of appointed citizen volunteers who make recommendations to the City Council on issues of interest to senior citizens and others. The commission hosts a free educational forum every other month.
