I was 15 when I told my mom I had been molested and I thought I had an STD.
she took me to the doctor. i cant remember if the doctor asked my mom to leave the room or if she asked if i wanted her to leave the room but anyway my mom had to go to the waiting room and the doctor asked me if i had had intercourse/been raped. i told her yes and i thought i might have herpes and i wanted to be tested for that.
she did a pap smear andleft the room and came back and said she ran for everything and i didnt have any STDs
they knew we didnt have insurance.
the bill came to like $500. my parents refused to pay it because they thought it was messed up that the doctors office ran these tests without even mentioning it to us, let alone asking if it was okay or anything. they didnt even suggest to me well if you've had contact with someone you might want to be tested for everything....
no they just ran them.
so about three years later they started billing ME for services i received when i was 15!!!!
i know that isn't legal. my bestfriends mom is a medical billing coder and she told me that, that isn't legal.
what should i do? should i contact a lawyer?
any experience with this?
