Just this week, I had an invoice from the healthcare system, where I consume most of my care, that looked fishy. I decided to embark on a little experiment and do some cross-checking. Rather than bore you with the details of my billing errors, I’ve decided to compile a blog post about the why and how of verification.
There’s a saying when it comes to construction, “measure twice and cut once.”
Or how about the Russian proverb, “trust but verify“?
These are things because to err is human! And yes, to forgive is simply divine. 🙂
As long as we have humans inputting data and building software, we will have billing errors.
