  •  It happened to my wife with annual free check up (1+ / 0-)

    They discussed her blood pressure a former issue now controlled with diet and exercise, which they then the doctor wanted to order lab work to confirm it was under control.

    Then we got a bill for two visits.

    She complained and the nurse said it was standard practice. BULL

    I first went to the doc and then the practice head and said this is not SOP and they said it was new SOP

    I then went to the benefits administrator making a mountain out of mole hill

    It was then finally rescinded. But it is going on all over the place. They view annual check ups as a new place to double bill.  

    They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither safety nor liberty~Ben Franklin
