How do I make a doctor's office work with insurance instead of just being lazy and trying to make me pay it?1COMB 2012-05-29 08:37:14
In February 2009 I was in hospital and at that time I was unemployed so I signed up for AHCCCS ( public assistance for health care in Arizona). Several medical expenses were covered later, except for one . This doctor's office sent me a bill 11 months after the date of service and said I had trouble working with the State to cover the bill. I made many calls to AHCCCS and the doctor's office to try to resolve the issues between them , but I keep getting bills . I think that the woman in the doctor's office just hates AHCCCS and will not deal with it. Since I am not the only provider there is much I can do, if they will not make an effort to work out the kinks between his office and AHCCCS then there's not much I can do. I keep getting a bill every month. Can the doctor's office come after me , although I was covered by insurance at the time because there was only enough effort to straighten it ? What options do I have?

Can I make this a home office?6-NeObLaZtErS- 2021-05-10 02:24:48
I live in a very small, one bedroom apartment. I believe it's no more than 500-600 square feet, if that. I have taken the big room and divided it into three areas. First, the kitchen. That has tiles. Second, the living room, which is defined by a carpet. Has a couch and TV. Third, the other corner, which has a kitchen table (which I NEVER eat on) and has my scanner, my laptop, a fan, and my bookshelf which has mostly computer books (and some of my other, general reading books). I'm a small business owner. My "business address" is my house on my insurance policies, and it is my only actual office (I don't rent space anywhere). My mailing address is separate, but that's because I use a mail service. I have 7 clients. Two require on-site work a day or two per week (and it varies a lot). I never go on-site for the other five clients (I do my work from home, always at this table). 1) Can I make the portion of the table a partial home office, so that if my rent is $1200, I can deduct perhaps $200-$300/mo? 2) Since this would be a home office, would commuting to my clients when they request (2 days a week or so, and it varies) be a deductible expense for gas/mileage? Since the majority of my clients are "work remotely", traveling is the exception. One client that I travel to is only a few miles away, but the other is 30 miles away and about 4 towns over. On those days, I rent a car (I don't own one). Thanks for any advice.
Why not make give doctors immunity from lawsuits?1mathsen2012-10-22 19:16:03
Instead of raising taxes to support national health care , all you have to do is give doctors immunity from being sued . This can make the cost cheaper. We could pay in cash rather than buy insurance . This is exactly how it works in Indonesia. Health care is very good and very cheap . However, you can not sue the doctor for malpractice . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus If a doctor is very bad , you may lose your license , or get a bad grade on the Internet . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus This seems like a simple but effective solution to the problem . Is there a flaw in this plan?

Is it okay for doctor's office to make you pay upfront, before billing to your insurance?3Evelyn2012-07-21 20:29:02
I have 23 weeks of pregnancy and used private insurance through my employer, for the first time, covering 80/20. I started going to the doctor in September, I paid the co-payment of the first visit. I received an EOB for laboratory services and has a bill later. I went to the doctor again a month later, had an ultrasound fact, have not been billed for anything. When I went back for a checkup early November, I asked about the allegations. I was presented with a "contract" to sign, stating that you will pay $ 640.00 (which covers all medical consultations, laboratory tests, caesarean section, and postpartum check-up). This is 20% that I am responsible for that insurance does not cover. I explained that I will not have insurance so after my job ends at the end of the year, and I will take Medicaid. The office manager said it did not matter, I still have to pay $ 640.00. When I returned again for my next appointment at the end of the month (3 days to be exact) for a checkup and another ultra-sound, he wanted half of the payment, because apparently I have to pay in full for my 7 th month pregnancy. I told them again that I will be receiving Medicaid. And again, I said it did not matter. So I went ahead and wrote a check for half. I called my insurance provider, and they told me the doctor's office just showed up to my September visit. Now I am approved for Medicaid and have just learned that can be used as secondary insurance but come to see my OB / GYN does not accept secondary insurance. When I arrived at the doctor's office for more answers the billing department, both the administrator and office manager denied that I have not mentioned anything about getting Medicaid. The lady who makes his billing, he said $ 640.00 was only estimated, when they present all I have to pay more. I discussed about having Medicaid, and I told them not have to pay that amount. The lady told me that the check you gave them was not refundable and I signed the contract and that I can try to switch to another doctor, that is if they will take me because I'm more than half of my pregnancy. I said that does not mention anything about being non-refundable. She said firmly, which is not refundable, and will probably pay more when presented for the 4 visits I have been. I asked the lady, "What if this doctor is not my baby, and does another doctor?" She told me I still have to pay the $ 640.00. So I said, "So you're telling me that if I were to have my baby while I'm out of town, and another doctor at birth, the doctor still get paid, plus they have to pay another doctor? " She said: "Yes." I'm not familiar with how insurance works, but that's just ridiculous! I'm tired and stressed out to talk to them because I still feel it is unfair. Can I get help through my private insurance, if I bring up this issue?
