I am very frustrated! I have gotten 2 bills from my SCS trials. ( I had 2 in March because the first leads didn't stim. at all on the left.) I have pretty good policy. 1800 max out of pocket. I have received bills totaling $4865. I took off from work yesterday due to illness but spent 3 hours talking to my insurance, the hospital and physician billing. The insurance says I owe $ 2800. since the procedures were coded as surgery for pain I need to pay 500. for each procedure in addition to 1800. Then the physician billing found one section that they were going to send for review to another dept. The hospital never did call back. Sooooo frustrating. Way to add stress to someone who is already struggling! Does any one know if there is a way to get help with this. It is so difficult and they are only available to talk to during my work hours. Should I pay some of the bill before i get it resolved? Do they still take payments? The bills seem to encourage you to use your credit cards, with no mention of setting up a payment plan. Thanks for letting me vent.
