Saved: $14,521.57

While visiting the US, Monika became very sick and spent two days in and out of the Emergency Room. Her medical bills totaled more than $20,000 and Monika said "that was $20,000 that I didn't have and was not prepared to pay in a country that was not mine".

After searching on the Internet, Monika read a Real Story (like this one!) and felt that she, too, "had no one to guide me through the process".


Monika's advocate worked with her to negotiate her bills, when before she had said she felt "harassed and treated like a con artist by collections agencies".


CoPatient was able to negotiate Monika's medical bills, saving her $14,521.57.
