Its not clear what you are asking. Your insurance company has a duty to defend (retain a lawyer on your behalf) and indemnify you (pay any settlement or judgment up to the policy limit).

After I completed my euo, I felt like a messed up on some of the questions but the attorney that represented my insurance company said they will mail me a transcript of the euo what does that mean and I can revise it ? Is that true ?
If you are talking about an insurance company for another person who might be liable to you for damages caused by an accident, the insurer can dispute its insured's liability, and the extent of the damages, until there is a settlement or a final judgment.

My doctor wrote a letter to the hospital that it was an outpatient surgery and to rebill ins. I've been fighting this for 16 months and keep getting the run around. Please advise if I have recourse. Thank you.

Defendants get to assert defenses. They have to prove them by a preponderance of the evidence. You are entitled to dispute the defenses. That happens at trial by testimony or other evidence. Since there has been no trial, you have no right to prevent the Defendants from claiming this defense.
My car was stolen and recovered back in June 2022 and my insurance companies underwriting team did their investigation and sent me a letter stating they rescinded on my policy for material misrepresentation for not disclosing all licensed drivers in my household on the policy application.
