Medical Billing Advocacy's growing importance is in the news
Announcing 2010 MEDICAL BILLING ADVOCATES OF AMERICA NATIONAL CONFERENCE

As more components of the new health care legislation become known and or effective, there is a growing urgency for controlling medical costs. This begins with medical billing. The errors are in the millions and the dollars are in the billions. The federal government should offer financial incentives to Medicare and Medicaid patients to audit their own medical bills and give them a share of what they discover as errors or outright fraud. Medical billing advocacy helps consumers understand and audit their medical bills. The need for medical billing advocates is estimated to grow 50 percent just in the next five years. Below are links to some recent news stories on medical billing issues.
