I don't think I will be going to any doctor's office again. I went almost a month ago for abdominal pains, got 2 prescriptions, had an xray and blood work sent to a lab. Then I got a call that the workups showed a liver enzyme with a high reading, recommending a specialist to check it out. I went there today, he said it was most likely insignificant, but they want more lab work and an out-patient procedure for which I wouldn't be able to drive the rest of the day. All that was scheduled for Sept. 25. Then after going home I got a notice in the mail from my 'provider' that the previous billings came to $809, NONE of which is covered. That made me so mad I called that new office and told them to shove it and cancel everything, that I'm not having any more tests that likely show nothing just to get my money. All the hell I needed was a confirmation that I had diverticulitis, as I had already diagnosed the situation myself, and a prescription that should help get rid of the infection. But the advantage they take of people they think have coverage, when not giving a #%&@ we may have to pay a lot of $$$ out of pocket as long as they get theirs..... I am not in a happy state of mind right now-- in fact, circumstances seem to be very frugal about that lately.
