I am disturbed by the trend among all healthcare companies: Doctors, Labs, Hospitals etc. who perform clinical work and DO NOT inform the patients of the costs involved.
I went into see my Dr. for general fatigue and they took blood samples and had LabCorp perform 10 analysis. The bill for this in the past has cost me about $260-$300 I was shocked at my latest bill for $1430!!!! It sent me into a rage.
I will NEVER trust a Doctor again without asking for costs upfront, if so help me if they try to Absolve themselves by saying they have no idea of the costs involved I will WALK OUT AND NEVER COME BACK. I asked by AC repair man to maintenance my AC unit, he gave me a quote first, why the *** should I not get an estimate from the Lab or Doctor BEFORE doing anything.
These healthcare companies are high jacking my finances and I'm angry and determined to do something about it. And if I discover any legal grounds for compelling them to stop the practice of billing patients outside of what regulations provide I will hire an attorney and make them pay me a pound of flesh for an ounce of trouble.
