As we age, most of us incurr more medical bills. It can pay off big time to become a pro at reading medical bills and explanations of benefits. Because medical revenue and reimbursement has gotten so complicated and at the same time more automated, it is easy for your healthcare provider and your insurer to make simple human errors. Question everything you don't understand. Common errors are inaccurate coding and incorrectly applied contractual adjustments.   I worked in hospital and clinic billing for 20 years, and let me tell you that mistakes happen. It is not intentional, its just because we have humans entering data and sometimes humans are fallible. If you don't want to learn it all, the easiest thing to so is to find someone in the billing office that you can help you.If you don't understand why you are paying a bill, as them to explain it, If you find someone that you have a great connection with, remember their name and ask for them everytime it will pay off. 

 Know what your maximum out of pocket is for the year. 

 Also take advantage of any timely payment discounts your provider may offer. My provider where I currently live gives a 15% discount for cash payments. Since I have a $3,500 deductable, this may add up to a savings of $525 for me this year.

Forget about using the AARP discount at Denny's and other places.  There are better coupons in the ads that come in your mail.

I use the library for Music, Movies, Books on Tape, and they have a program where you can check out passes to local destinations like the Japanese Gardens free for first time users.

If you do not have a computer at home, use the computers for public use at the library, but be sure to follow the library rules for their use.
