Customer Question

My insurance paid $1200 for a CT scan during an ER visit, and I'm being charged $3200 for the balance the insurance company didn't pay. My deductible has not been met, so I asked the billing dept if they could reduce the $3200 balance and was told it is "against the law" for the hospital to do this. They said this would be insurance fraud. Is this accurate?

That is incorrect. That is not insurance fraud. Hospitals and medical providers reduce or waive balances all the time.
