Need Help Negotiating Reduction in Medical Bills?

We Provide Free Help as Non-Profit

California Medical Billing Advocates (CALMBA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, with a mission to reduce or eliminate unjust medical bills before they become crippling debt.  

Our Officers and Board of Directors are ex-healthcare finance executives, professors from UCSF and UC Hastings, and healthcare lawyers providing free expert assistance. 

We believe surprise and excessive medical bills are part of a structural problem due to the complex U.S healthcare system.  Unfortunately, many patients get caught up with potentially crippling bills.  We believe this is unjust; and founded CALMBA to help.

Negotiating Prices to More Reasonable Rates

Bill amounts based on very high chargemaster rates can sometimes be negotiated to more reasonable rates based on usual and customary charges (UCC), and/or average contracted rates (ACR).

Negotiating Balance Bills

Many balance bill situations may be unjustified or illegal. Negotiations can eliminate or reduce bill amounts.

Auditing Bills For Errors

Medical bills often may contain errors and inflated charges. We help request and analyze itemized bills on behalf of patients.
