Back in July, our little girl spent a few days in the hospital.Â Yesterday, the bill from the hospital arrived in the mail.Â Our insurance company has paid its portion of the costs, and the bill was for our portion.
The bottom of the bill reads –
Current Amount Due – $362.39
Discounted Amount Due If Paid By 09/28/08 – $326.15
So, I logged into my checking account, made the payment of $326.15, and saved myself 10%.
Have you ever been offered a discount for paying a medical bill early?
The discount certainly motivated me to go ahead and pay the bill.Â I wish every company with which I do business would do the same!
