I was charged $350 for a 10 min phone call w/ Primary care to have my BP meds renewed.
Insurance covered 80%, but generally, this is preventative care covered at 100%.
$350 is usually the billing for a visit with a specialist.
Are they up to something phishy?
Maybe now is the time to call an attorney and push on them so they aren’t pushing on other people during this time of crisis. Maybe its a good learning experience to push them on something simple and see what happens. It might help me, down the line, when they trouble me with something important.
Part of me feels like if I have never called a lawyer about my health insurer, then I have not fulfilled due diligence to keep them honest. I have wanted to do this soooo many times. I should at least know how this works.
