Final Update on Negotiating High Medical Bills

Last week I received good news on the $1,481 ER Doctor bill.   My medical negotiator informed me that the group for whom the doctor works applied a charity care credit to my account, bringing it to zero.

My entire $1,481 bill was waived.  I paid nothing.

I don't know how their process works, but I was never asked for income or asset verification or vetted in any other way.  Frankly, I think the amount I still had to pay for the emergency room (almost $1,000) was more than enough for all the "services" I received.  Still, it's amazing that they would just completely waive all charges.
