A single dad that I know took his kid to urgent care a few weeks back. They sent him to ER because they had just closed for the evening. After waiting for an hour and a half at ER to see a doctor for 15 minutes, it was determined that it was an ear infection and they were given a prescription and sent away.

The bill was just shy of $1000.

A while back (I believe on this board) there was a thread about some type of advocate that helps clients work to reduce medical bills. Does anyone have any idea where to find it? Maybe the advocate worked for the insurance company....???

Thanks for any help.
