I'll spare you all the details because I've posted them here before.
At least six months ago I spoke with the medical assistant/billing person at my old OB's office because their billing was SO screwed up.
I was actually furious I had received such poor care and had to pay over $400 on a new deductible in January because they failed to let me know the results of my December ggt test. Having to deal with their billing mistakes made me even more angry when I spoke with her. She listened and said she would remove some of the charges. I never got another bill from them again. Today, I got a bill from a collection agency. I called the office and got put on hold forever and finally hung up.
I have a feeling I am going to pay this stupid bill. If I pay a very small amount each month (I mean really small like $10 a month) can the collection agency pursue this further?
I am so angry at how bad the care was and now this again.
