What kind of fee were you charging?

The most I can get + 10%! I discount
my services like everyone else. They just stiffed us.
It was a cash deal, no insurance involved.

The insurance company paid him $635 under their PPO (preferred provider plan) contract. Under the terms of the insurance company contract, the doctor can't come after me for any of the $2,015 difference. If I was in an MSA, I would have ended up paying the $2,650 myself, unless I was as skillful as the insurance company negotiators in securing a big discount.

You can setup an MSA with a PPO for your insurance.

Best wishes,
and thanks for a great board and your time devoted to it. I LUV YOU TO MAN.
