    This is Bull Shit...



    So I took my son to the ear-nose-throat doctor for his annual checkup(he's now 28 months) and I was their for literally 5 minutes. I paid my copay as usual and then a week later I get a bill for $463.89. It says that another doctor reviewed his labs, whatever, and that's why they billed me this extra amount. That's bullshit if you ask me. My deductible for this year has already been met and I have good insurance. How are you going to charge me half a grand for some white-coat to probably look at his chart for a mere 5 seconds and then to add it to the bill. Fucking ridiculous in my mind!

Are you serious??? It says that another doctor read is labs or whatever so that's why they billed me this amount. That's bullshit if you ask me and also, my deductible for this year has already been met and I have good insurance. How are you going to charge me half a grand for some white-coat to probably look at his chart for a mere 5 seconds to charge me for that. Fucking ridiculous

    Just had my taxes done and they asked if I had health Ins. I told the lady no and she replied if I dont have it next year I'll have to pay a 95 dollar fee due to Obummer care. This country can't run the post office but yet they want to run health care. There is a reason that HC is a private company.

    It's the same with my insurance I have the so called "good plan" and it doesn't cover certain medications, so why have the "good plan" ? Insurance screws you in the end.

    It has nothing to do with "Obamacare"

    Roids, was the doc out-of-network? Why did you see an ENT doc instead of a family doc or pediatrician? Did you get a referral? There's gotta be a good reason for that high bill.

    This . I have had this happen many times. What happens is doctors network with other specialists who may or may not be in your network or covered. They will not ask you first and bam you think it's paid and you get this horrendous bill. Call and bitch like hell and just say you just can't pay it. I am in chemo and I have bills you can't even imagine. 21 pills ,a mere 3 weeks worth cost $ 10,000, yes that's not a typo. $ 20,000 bags of liquid hanging from the pole everywhere. It's not just Obamacare or Ins. companies ,although they sure have a share in the blame. Healthcare is so far out of the ability for the working person to afford that frankly I see no solution. How this happened , God only knows. We of course are the one's who suffer and we lash out and blame this or that and it's understandable. It is not a simple problem but very complex and greed definately comes into play but it is a necessity. God help us in the years to come. To be fair if Ins. companies paid EVERYTHING as we would like they would go bankrupt and not even exsist. I feel for you my friend.

    I would also add become very familiar with your insurance. Make sure you know what is covered up front and make this info known to your Doctor. Being viligant will keep alot of this from happeneng.

    this sounds like my ins.! this is truly a rip off. tell them you saw your normal pediatrician as usual. (who is in network). you have no control or knowledge of who they will,have read your.chart. explain to them you.did.not authorize this and you will not pay this bill.also, express to them
    how upset you are that they would give your childs info to an out of network DR. without yoir approval. there is.(patient confidentiality). tell them you are.going to seek legal action with your attorney. they will change their tune real quick.

    my. insurance.sounds.as.bad as yours. my wife.is.pregnant. we.go to an in network DR,in a.in network hospital. we were told to make sure the
    anasthesiologist is in network. which he is,but what if.he.isnt on call or working that day. we.do not know who is.on call that day at the hospital. they said we would be.billed for everything. I told them they can try it. we cant control if the bring in an out of network DR. we dont know these things . its not going to happen.

    Was that $95.00 total ?I am being told that is around $600.00 per person for the year ?Plus -that is just the penalty.I believe it depends on income-but not positive.All I do know is insuranse covers less every year-OD

    That 95 dollar fine is only for the first year. The fine goes up each year till it tops out over $900!

    Yeah, the lady told me it will go up. And like OD said above it goes by income.

    Thanks guys for all the responses. I'm calling right now to take care of this. I will polite but stern with them. I was told that this was only a checkup and this is why I am frustrated with billing process. I actually never thought of calling them to tell them that I never authorize the charges. I'll let you guys know what happens. Thanks again. Plus I'd rather spend 500$ on some quality gear than pay those greedy bastards more money. haha

    It could be worse. We just got finished fighting with the insurance company for the past year trying to get reimbursed for a jaw surgery for my wife, to the tune of about $7k. One thing we figured out is, don't take "no" for an answer.
