Between my deductible and coinsurance i am responsible for paying $2500 after all my PT, surgery, MRI scan, hospital bill, and surgeon. I have roughly $1000 on hand to pay all these bills and can pay about $50 a month after that $1000. between all these different physicians. Can i negotiate my portion of these bills? and if so, what are some good tactics to go about this. I obviously dont want to pay five differnt medical agencys $10 a month for the next 2 or 3 years. Thanks

    a break if you do not have insurance to pay for the procedures. They can reduce the amount owed and allow a longer period of time to repay it.
    But when it crosses different doctors and medical groups, I am not sure how all of that could be negotiated and coordinated,unless you go to each on individually and plead your case.

    Not having enough money to pay the bill is more than enough to tell them
