YES, YES and YES! ALL doctor's, hospital's, surgery centers/ect have a certain time frame for cancellation. If you do not cancel before or by that time frame then you will be charged. I was scheduled for my radical hysterectomy on a Friday but, the Sunday before I had been admitted in to the hospital in critical condition. Well I ended up spending 12 days in the hospital and missed the hysterectomy, I had been told that my surgeon was contacted to postpone the hysterectomy but they were not. So I am now paying for that hysterectomy and the one that I did end up getting 3 weeks later, it sucks!! So be careful & make sure to always read the fine print!
