Atta_boy:

tried that..they said they cannot reveal any medical forms/information unless they have authorization fro patient to talk to me.




no,i meant..about the copies of papers you signed
Ask for atleast for a copy of blank forms ,if signed copies are not possible
For patients data,there are privacy issues involved.But there should be no problem for them to give copy of portion of the forums you signed

Or just go to the counter where you have signed the forms and ask them if you can see the blank forms (without mentioning anything related to the case)

Uno:

Go to hospital and ask for copies of the forms you have signed
If there is any financial liability/obligation on your part,then you need to think about it

If at all there is any liability on you,they will send notice to you before going to collection

if the bills are coming to her name, just ignore. unless u signed financial responsibility for her. legally a hospital cant deny services due to lack of insurance..worst case, say i can pay 10k only and ask for payment plan

Fight with the insurance company while you negotiate with the hospital. Do you know why the hospital only paid 4k. Pre-existing conditions clause tho eggotara? If possible share the insurance agency details. One of my friend 1) Negotiated with the hospital to reduce the amount 2) Agreed on an installment plan with the hospital and 3) Fought with the insurance company during this time to have them cover for more. It is time taking but it will save you money (much less than 50k that you are being asked to pay). If you give your SSN, they may attach it to you at some point. Those days are gone where you can say, I am not responsible. they are coming after these. My 2c

Negotiate for reduction of bill and ask installment as $50 per month.

Any insurance in India 50K or 100K as sublimits for different categories.

You arr npt responsible for anything. It is her bill and her insurance paid whatever they pay. Call hospital billing department and tell them that she cannot afford to pay the bill. They will ask you fill in a form on her behalf and write a letter explaining why she cannot afford it. I don't remember if I had to submit any supporting documents for Patient's incone. Hospital will forgive the bill. Remember, as long as bills are on her name, you don't owe them anything. Hospital will try to tell you all sorts of things to get money out of you, don't fall for their crao. If they tell you that you singed responsibility form, ask them to send you a copy to verify.

address is mine..name is hers...but hospital lo join chesetapud i remember giving my ssn and details




Check the forms/agreement again..ask hospital for the copies

May be you have signed as guarantor or some sort of liability agreement

If you contact the hospital finance dept and plead them that you can not afford,they will reduce the bill

The hospital will settle for max 50%..If you can afford,pay it and ask for extended payment plan..so that you can pay in Installments

Also,contact the Insurance company and file claim, send the copies of medical bills and ask the to settle

In case you have not signed any financial liability docs,just ignore the bills
