This quasi experimental study was conducted using the data. Data was analyzed by SPSS software using paired t test.
Results: The bill deductions in the second six months of 2013 compare to the same time in 2014 were 2.9 and 11.1 percent, respectively. Hospital bill deductions increased 282.8 percent after the health transformation plan implementation. The deductions on inpatients and outpatients records increased 6 and 12 times, respectively. Most deduction was imposed on surgical and laboratory bills in 2013 and on radiotherapy, chemotherapy and hoteling bills in 2014.
