Re: [IP] Re: Apria's billing
I know that the insurer does not pay the "billed" price, Gina, but if you
have a percentage copay, or a cap to the dollar amount, that billed price,
from what I can tell, is what they go by. I have both. I am not the only
one. I too, work in health care. I believe that it is CRIMINAL and I hope
illegal somewhere to "bill" one amount and actually get paid a different,
secret amount. Especially when capped amounts and copay percentages are
calculated at the billed rate. Let's think for a minute. They billed
$16,000 for a $4500 item. Regardless of whether they collected that amount
or not. Insane.
: ) Deep sigh on the part of the patient advocate.
