Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good morning Sherri. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today! It will take me just a few minutes to type a response to your question. Thanks for your patience!
Your physician is not going to be able to collect this. You had every right to rely upon the physician's assurance that you would owe nothing. It was their duty to inform you, after checking your insurance coverage, of any charge you would owe. They told you nothing. If there was an error, then the risk of loss is on them not you. You did everything you were supposed to do and now they are trying to collect an excess amount to which they are not entitled. You want to stand up to them on this as too often these folks in medical offices just try to shove these charges down your throat and too often get away with it. They would not prevail in any claim against you in trying to collect this.
