Great News Yesterday

October 20th, 2015 at 01:54 pm

Hi, everyone.

I just got some great news yesterday and I thought I would tell you all about it as a caution to be aware and ask questions. I recently had some lab work done. I have health insurance that comes with a "lab card" that is supposed to insure, in most cases, that I don't have to pay a bill. There were a large number of tests run, but I was still surprised to get a bill of $107.00. I called the lab testing company to inquire if they had a list of tests that are covered so that I would know in the future if a certain test was run, I would have to pay for it. The person said they do not have a list, but asked what the problem was. So, I told her about the lab work and my lab card, which she asked me to send to her, which I did. One clue is that the name of insurance company listed on the bill was not mine. That was forwarded to billing and they fixed it straight away and said they had gotten incorrect billing information from the collection facility. Anyway, this is just a note to all of you that if you get a bill that does not seem right, ask questions. Woo-Hoo! I feel fantastic.

    Great news for you! I think this happens quite a bit with medical billing. I would suggest to others reading to check your cable bill EVERY month too. We've only had ours for a couple months...and it's amazing the kind of things that come up, all errors of course.

    Check your grocery receipts too! This week the cashier at Walmart scanned our cat food twice and I didn't notice because I was still putting items on the moving belt. I don't always look over the receipt when I get home, but thank goodness I did this time. They refunded the overage.

    Yes, I have caught some over charges at the grocery store, like meat no longer being on sale but the sign is still up and that sort of thing. They usually give the item to me for free if it was their fault.
