Listen folks beware of the phantom Doctor bill.. It happens each and every time any patient stop seeing a particular Doctor. What most office staff billing managers do is (and most of the Doctors do it) is they mail out a bill to you for services months back they claim I that you failed to pay.. . You can check your bank statements and you’ll find it was not paid..The reason that it will never appear on any of your debit and credit cards and that the money was not remitted to the Doctor’s office is because you were never there on that day. What are we to do? Most of not all Doctors offices and clinics either buzz you in upon payment or buzz you out after you payed for your visit.. We all know it a bogus bill sent to us. However how can anyone prove that they never received service on that day in question? If you refuse to pay they will refer it to a recovery firm (collection agency), and if you fail to pay they will ruin your credit..
This is a common practice employed by nearly all doctors offices and clinics.. It is tantamount to Hi Way Robbery.. All I can say is document your visit some how.. mark it on a calendar and and take a picture of it with your cell phone.. Have someone always accompany you to the Doctor’s office as a means to cooperate your visits.. demand to see your chart for that claimed visit (thou that can falsified and rewriten to bolster their claim) .. Better yet tell the Doctors office that you were out of state on that day.. Scare them by saying you can document it with your airline ticket and tell them in the strongest language that if they put it through your insurance company not only is it falsifying a state record but fraud a class “D” felony…that will put the fear of God on them… What’s the matter the Doctors today don’t make enough money they have resort to this?
