Chicago, IL, December 20, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- There is no doubt the struggling economy has hit U.S. families hard. Job losses, reduced hours and rising medical costs have meant more and more families are facing mountains of medical debt due to catastrophic injuries or chronic illness and disease. This debt can run anywhere from the tens of thousands of dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars to well over a million dollars.
"In many cases, this medical debt is due to medical coding errors," said Sunni Patterson, co-founder and owner of Medical Bill & Claim Resolution in Chicago. "There errors cost consumers at least $17 billion annually, according to the American Medical Association, and consumers don't even know they have a way to fight insurers’ decisions."
"MBCR can help a person or individual get out from under a mountain of medical debt this holiday season by providing our comprehensive bill analysis services for free. This can potentially wipe out thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars from a person’s medical bills," Patterson said.

RMK has been awarded Accredited Business status by the Better Business Bureau for its 25-year track record of building and promoting trust within the medical billing and collections industries, and for acting as a consumer advocate in the medical bill help industry.
"Gross medical bill errors can unknowingly happen to any one of us, and are not based on income, ethnicity or profession. People who have used our services come from all walks of life – from senior citizens to from parents, busy professionals, executives, family managers and consultants," Patterson said.
