For Your Information: Medical Debt Rights
California residents have strong protections from incorrect medical bills that can help you avoid paying for a bill that you are not responsible for. First, if you have Medi-Cal insurance, once you inform your health care provider that you have Medi-Cal, they cannot send a bill to you and can only bill Medi-Cal. This rule applies to any service covered by Medi-Cal for up to a year after you get the medical service. Read Full Article by Hilary Moise with Legal Services of Northern California
