Closer Look Wrap Up 1/10/14
From the Affordable Care Act to simply finding the right doctor at the right price, health care can be confusing and expensive. However, there are ways to ease the headaches and the dent in your wallet.
We sat down with Levi Stone, Chief Nursing Officer with Odessa Regional Medical Center.
Stone encourages everyone to do a little shopping around when it comes to your doctor, hospital and they pharmacy that you use. He also suggests doing your homework on your insurance, and if you are usually healthy you can look into a lower premium. He also said to always ask the hospital about any discounts like paying cash up front, and make sure you go over your bill to look for any errors.
