    Has anyone ever had any luck negotiating down a hospital bill? I know you can frequently do this if you are uninsured, but is it possible to do this even if you are insured?

    Last month, I had an emergency room visit. I'm getting billed $1300 for a two hour visit and a CAT scan. And that's AFTER my insurance has paid their portion. I already checked with my insurance, and they said the hospital billed the correct rates.

    So, is it possible to negotiate down a hospital bill if you have insurance?

    I'm not sure about negotiating, but you can set up a payment plan, which should be about 30$ per month based on your bill.
