I wander how would play out this hypothetical situation.
Patient who needs surgery tells hospital worker that he does not have insurance.
After surgery, as a cash paying patient, he gets his 50% discounted hospital bill.
Now he calls administrator and says, sorry but I forgot that I have insurance.
Here is ID and group number and I will send copy of this bill to my insurance.
Would he get bonus from insurance co. for saving them some money?
