Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

So, open up the mail today (we've been gone for 4 days), Got a bill from a hospital in a larger, neighboring city for $1500. My DH name is on it. It is for DNA testing, SEVERAL times.... He has never been a patient at this hospital, much less our own smaller hospital!! And, I KNOW he has no reasoning to have DNA testing done. We have been happily (lol) married for 15 years.

What a joke is this? And, to top it all off, our last name is very very unusual.

Guess who I am going to be on the phone to tomorrow?  Wish me luck.. YIKES

 

 

ETA: Just to remind you that my dh and I have discussed this, and we areboth inaww about it, and so laughing about it. I am sure it is a mistake on either the insurance or hospital. My dh and I are very loyal to each other. No doubt in my mind he is telling me the truth.

 

OKAY ALL.... IT WASN' T MY DH, IT WAS ME!!! HERE IS THE STORY......

WE HAD A BABY BORN SLEEPING ON 2/21/2013. I SPECIFICALLY SAID THAT I DO NOT NEED TO KNOW THE REASONING FOR THESTILLBIRTH. IT IS WAS IT IS AND THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO TO CHANGE IT. WELL, THE DOCTOR APPARENTLY STILL ORDERED ALL OF THESE TESTS. I SPOKE WITH A FRIEND OF MINE THAT HAS HAD A STILLBIRTH AND SAID THAT THE TESTING IS GENERALLY NOT COVERED BY INSURANCE, SO WE MAY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THE TESTING. BELIEVE ME I WILL BE TALKING WITH THAT DR ABOUT THE UNNECESSARY TESTING!!! I AM REALLY PISSED!

Someone may have stolen his identity.  Run a credit report RIGHT NOW.

Let us know when you find out. It doesn't have to be paternity BTW.

I know my hubby wouldn't cheat on me, but to see a bill with his name on it for dna testing would freak me out. It would probably cause at the very least a long discussion.

Course every medical bill I've ever seen with his name on it never stated what it was for. It was all written in medical speech.

I am so sorry for your loss and I hope that you can get the bill figured out.

I am so sorry!

OH. MY. WORD. I'd be LIVID with the doctor. This is one that would probably make smoke come out of my ears. To me that's not just a simple mistake that is an invasion. You just don't go there. Especially when the patient/parent specifically said NO.

Agree with this!
I'm also sorry you had to go through that and now this. Hope you fight the doctor and that you won't have to pay anything, ((hugs))
