Hey guys! Please, can anyone help? Coming from England the insurance system in the USA can be beyond confusing...
Yesterday I received a $1000 invoice from a lab that processed a urine test I did back in January. I contacted my insurance company & was informed that the in-network doctor sent my sample to an out of network lab!! This seems very wrong!!
I only went to this doc a couple of times. It was a big mistake. Anyone who's followed my story... This is the 'dealer doc' who offered to write any prescriptions I wanted so long as I agreed to regular procedures like ESIs even though I'd been advised they couldn't help in my situation. I'd only gone because he claimed to be an expert in natural & alternative treatments. As soon as I realized the 'truth' I ran. I left on a bad note. Ugh!!
The lab offers payment plans but that's not the point! Do I really have to pay? Has this happened to anyone else?
