• What happens if I don't pay a medical bill?

    I've been going to the same doctor for nearly 3 years. I've had Medicaid the entire time as well. I already had one doctor's visit this year and there was a problem with my insurance (it just needed updating). However, when I was trying to get everything straightened out, I was informed by my doctor's office that they do not accept Medicaid. I asked if this was a recent change and they ignored my question. Today, I checked the mail and received a bill from them for $200, which should have been completely covered by my insurance. I'm going to call them tomorrow, but why should I have to pay this? How was I supposed to know they suddenly stopped accepting my insurance?

  • Wouldn’t it be fair to have insurance companies refuse service based on another persons religious beliefs?

    I don’t believe insurance companies cater to people who believe myths exist.

  • How much would it cost out of pocket (no insurance) to determine if one has ever suffered a stroke?

    Best answer: That depends which hospital you go to. Call and ask their ER fee. If you dont have much money go to any health clinic operated by your county or city.

    Hello. Okay, I'll try to fit this. -Fractured my hip and femur skiing. Let my insurers know before reaching hospital. It took 8 hours to reach hospital. -I had treatment in Montenegro. The nurses were honorific neglectful (you'd wallow in your mess if they weren't coming and would scream at me. -I didn't eat for a week. Just a couple slices of bread a day. I got sick after 3 days of this and could no longer due to immense stomach pain. -My mother was letting insurance know what I was going through often. -My insurance did nothing. They left me. -When I was told I could be discharged the insurance weren't paying the hospital...after three days of more misery and pain I was so upset and just paid the 900 euros myself. - I had to have a friend travel 6 hours every day to sort my insurance out with the hospital. This wasn't her responsibility. -I stayed with friends after. In bed every day. I needed physiotherapy. Insurance did nothing. -I became worse after three weeks and my knee completely ceased up. -My mother took annual leave for a few days to bring me home. -I was still seriously injured and couldn't walk. -Insurance booked me three seats on a budget flight to return. (The captain thought it was odd) This was terribly painful and uncomfortable. I went to hospital on my own accord when home. I had new x-rays. The British surgeon told me that the surgery was not up to standards, and it may cause very serious complications. As well as the hip fracture being very serious.

    Best answer: Regarding this response:

    Salary
    1000

    Deduction from gross
    401K -50
    Health INS -50
    HSA Employee (Pretax)-100
    ----
    -200

    Taxes
    Federal -100
    Social Security Employee -50
    Medicare Employee -50

    ----
    -300

    Net Pay 500

    Direct Deposit
    Checking 400
    HSA 100

    Your employer is doing it wrong. You should have $500 go to checking and $100 to the HSA. I wonder how many other people your genius of an HR/Payroll person is screwing over. Sounds more like they're an idiot than a scammer, but totally wrong.

    So, to answer your question, the extra money is still in your employer's bank account.

  • Health insurance eligibility?

    If I took 20mg of Prozac a day and had counseling for anxiety when I was 16 years old can I be denied health insurance later in life? The pills were paid for with insurance and the counseling was out of pocket.

My father is in Columbia for a dentist appointment (dentists are very cheap there). He had his second heart attack today and is in the hospital, but he has health insurance. He has Medicare a and b. The problem is that I am reading online that Medicare does not cover you while you are abroad. Is that true? We have no money, we can t pay for anything out of pocket. What are our options?

    The other day, in my college physiology class, we did this lab. In one part of the lab, we had to test our blood pressure with a high-tech monitor.

    The other day, in my college physiology class, we did this lab. In one part of the lab, we had to test our blood pressure with a high-tech monitor. After testing a couple different times, I noticed that my blood pressure was at 144/93, which is classified as hypertension. I was not in any sort of abnormal condition, and the monitor was a pretty high end one, so I know the reading is accurate. I don't want to officially get this evaluated by a nurse or doctor because I would rather not make my parents pay for that. Also, I am worried that if I get officially diagnosed and if my health insurance finds out that I have this condition, my rates will go up. I would definitely not want my parents to pay for this. Would this occur in the event that I am diagnosed with hypertension?
