I had what felt like another kidney stone coming on. When the symptoms continued I decided to get to the ER. The staff at the ER could not have been better or more attentive. Turns out that either I passed... more it or I had some other spasms. While there I received a CT scan and a shot (Muscle Relaxer). I went home feeling much better.
Then I got my bill. They attempted to bill my insurance $16,000. My insurance refused that price and paid them about $3,800. They sent me the co-pay portion of $1,600. Why was the initial bill $16,000 and the final bill $5,400? We wonder why we have such issues with insurance in this country. The real problem is no pricing regulation to stop medical providers from gouging the public.
I see a few responses from the Hospital to positive reviews, but it looks like the preponderance of reviews are negative and the majority are over your billing practices. How about a response that explains this issue, or that you are making changes to better align costs to be more reasonable and affordable?
This is only getting 5 starts because while I was here night ( not in the ER ) the nurses that took care of me were amazing ! It’s sad to see them go after their shifts ! Kristaina, Pam, Claire are... more so kind and made me feel at home ! I hope to see them soon but this time not as a patient! This hospital gets a bad rep. Most of the times but fortunately I was blessed with the best nurses !
Here for a surgical procedure. They called me to schedule the procedure yesterday and scheduled it for 10:50am. I am still waiting at 11:45am. Then I was told my appointment got bumped to 12pm, but I was... more never informed of this. Go elsewhere if you want to be kept informed of appointment times.
