See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Since the last quarter of 2012 we have been getting bills from our health care provider to cover the difference our insurance didn't cover.
According to our health insurance our well visits are only supposed to cost us our $25 co pay. Our insurance only covers $60 on top of the $25 co pay, but most of our doctors visits are $130+ on average so we have been billed for the difference.
This didn't happen before October of 2012. Has anyone else experienced this?
May 29, 2013:
After I thought I had handled the bill and solved the 'issue' of being charged for an annual well visit that is only supposed to cost a co-pay I got another bill from the clinic today. It was about 20% less than the original bill. I called the billing dept. at the clinic immediately. I was told that the original person I spoke to was a temp, but only after being accused of being a liar because no one by the name of 'Barbara' ever worked at the clinic. Next I was told that I was billed for an office visit because I discussed my depression with the doctor. HELLO! When the doctor asks how long I've been taking medications and what they're for I'm going to answer. Since when is over-all health not a part of the physical? Since when is listing medications and answering questions not a part of the physical? Hopefully this phone call will be my last.
With my luck the clinic will probably drop our insurance and I'll be left with the clinic and physicians I hate at the only other clinic in 200 miles that is contracted by our insurance.
