I am furious at the rising healthcare costs. I knew it was going up but I recently received a bill that is the MOST inflated I have ever seen. My daughter began complaining with her arm hurting and not being able to move it. It did seem a little swollen and after about a week, I took her to see our nurse practitioner. She felt around her arm and her shoulder and thought she felt something weird so she sent for her an xray. I had to call to get the results and all the nurse said was that she had a grade 2 injury and they made me an appt with our local orthopedic doc. I got there and he asked me if I had the xrays. I said, well they were done at the hospital next door. He is supposed to be able to pull them up online. He was not able to, so I left the office, went next door and got them myself. He was very apologetic. So he looks at them and says....who said she had an injury? I said, the radiologist. He said apparently.....contAnswer Question

Yes, you can. Especially if she was misdiagnosed. Call their office, tell them what the doctor said and that you want them to write off whatever insurance didn't pay. Tell them you will be happy to have the doctor write a letter or they can call him about it. You can tell them to take the insurance payment and write off the rest. Most of the time, they will do it in a case like this. Be persistent. Talk to supervisors if you have to. Your best bet is to start out nice, try to win them over with kindness. If that doesn't get you anywhere, that's when you get pushy and demanding.
