My granddaughter went to ER here in AZ with what they diagnosed as a urinary tract infection. Not only did they do a blood test and urinalysis they went way beyond with all kinds of expensive tests that she never consented to. The bill was over $15,000 with her insurance
only paying $9,000. They are after her to pay the $6,400 balance. She only makes minimum wage
and cannot afford to pay. She has disputed the bill with the hospital to no avail. What are her options?
JA: Has your granddaughter talked to an AZ lawyer about this?
Customer: She can't find a lawyer in Lake Havasu yet where she lives that will go against the local hospital.
JA: What steps has she taken so far?
Customer: She has written letters to the Hospital Grievance committee, Hospital CEO and Head Doctor requesting relief from charges for test she didn't consent to. The urinalysis and blood test would have shown the UT infection. There was no reasons for additional tests. They have now turned bill over to collection agency.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I can't think of anything.
