my income statement is off because of duplicate entries on health insurance

The insurance expense on our income statement is generally around 3 to 4 grand.  I started at this business in March and many invoices etc had not been entered/paid.  In March and April, I entered a lot of these and paid them. Because of the dates that I used when I entered them, previous months were showing up in March and April so the insurance expense went up from 3 to 4 grand to 10 to 15 grand.  I credited the duplicates and I know that I can't change the dates at this point to move them from March or April to their correct month since the months are closed (at least I don't think it is possible).  So far in May, the income statement shows a negative amount for insurance.  Is this just how it is going to have to be or is there something I can do to make proper adjustments so that expenses are showing up in the correct month?
