Well, been part of this board for a year now. Started TTC (at 43) last Oct. got pg. right away...baby's hb stopped at 7 weeks and I needed a D&C. (on Jan.4th)
I was under Medicare and it was covered, 4 months later (long story on why), but Medicare dropped me, suddenly and retro'd my coverage as stopped effective Dec. 31st, so after all claims were paid out, they asked doctor medical practice for money back and now medical practice is after me for the total amount of doctor service of $866!!
What a nightmare, not only do I have to suffer a loss, but now this!
okay, been 'trying' to make medicare pay, with no luck, for last few months....so I talked to billing & am 'trying' to negotiate a fair price (not $866).....I will pay no more than $650 (hopefully I can work out something out, lower)
I have new medical insurance & would like to TTC & keep my doctor.....I don't know what to do? if they can't work a deal out? I don't want to give them anymore business & will have to find a new OB/GYN? or do you think I should just keep doctor anyway & just see what happens with billing? I want to pay bill & get rid of it hanging over my head, but I refuse to pay anymore that $650 (which is more than enough!)
Any thoughts? thanks!
