<<<<I don't blame you for being miffed! I'd blast the insurance company about taking so long and causing you to be hassled like this.>>>>Jacki, Let me chime in her -- there are I few things I do know about, ALTHOUGH FEW IF YOU ASK STORMFOOLI used to deal with the medical billing in my previous nursing job, and I just want to make you aware of something.Most insurance companies WILL NOT PAY a bill that has remained unserviced more than 90 days -- therefore making you responsible for the bill -- I know this stinks!!! So for your protection, make sure the following has occurred...1) the bill was generated on the day of service2) find out when the bill was sent to the insurance company3) find out if the insurance company had returned the bill to the generator for any reason (usually improper coding, wrong diagnosis, etc).4) definately make sure that all premiums and copays are covered.Chances are that the bill has been laying on someone's desk for an unspecified time. With this information, CLIMB THE PROVERBIAL CORPORATE LADDER.You may request copies of the payment sent to the hospital, or any information regarding this account.hope this helpsJeff
