Every doctor’s visit, surgery and inpatient hospitalization is recorded on an electronic medical record. Went to your general practitioner to have a cough checked out? There is a document recording the visit. Had a surgery to replace your knee? There is an operative report detailing everything about your surgical procedure. Were you brought into the hospital for an illness? There are records documenting every physician you saw and what their input was.
We will translate any of these documents into easy to read reports that will help you understand the care you received.

One of the most confusing documents you will receive as a patient is the Explanation of Benefits (EOB). This is a detailed account of your bill and the insurance company reimbursement. It also details the payment you are responsible for as a patient. As a consumer you should know exactly what you are paying for. This is where SpeakMD can help. We will help translate your EOB so you can dispute overcharges and ensure you are only paying for services received.
