Even bigger surprises followed when the hospital billed The Bergs for some extra services, some of which were even were not provided. Bills of over $20,000 kept coming by mail and Cindy Berg decided clarify the situation with help of Medical Recovery Services, a company specialized in assisting people in getting their medical bill mistakes fixed. Later on, after fixing the billing mistakes, The Bergs’ final billing amount was lowered to $1,700.
