Unfair Medical Bill HELP!
« on: February 01, 2014, 08:42:09 PM »
Hey guys,
I am absolutely freaking out right now. Recently I had a routine pap smear (everything was normal, woo!). My doctor had to send the samples to the local hospital's lab to run the tests because they didn't have the capabilities at their office. That hospital now sent me a bill for $280. $280 for a routine lab test!? And I have insurance! I looked on my insurance records and it said the hospital billed my insurance $75 and insurance has already paid it. I have no idea where in the world this $280 came from. Any advice on what to do? I'm seriously freaking out. I'm unemployed and have no money and $355 seems outrageous just to run a lab test. Help!

you should not have to pay anything. under the new health care law all preventive test are suppose to be covered 100 per cent. I had a pap smear and was not suppose to have to pay the co pay for the Dr. I would call the insurance and ask them if it shouldn't be covered.
