Doctors WTF?

My son broke his foot last month playing football. We just started seeing some of the bills for this. One of them in particular was the bill for the orthopedic surgeon who DID NOT perform a surgery. This bill lists $58.75 for the office visit and $1695 for a surgery that was never done. They never invaded his skin. Not even for shot. All he did was look at his foot take an xray and put a walking boot on. WTF!!!???

And this is on top of an ER bill that was only $851. The ER did more than this doctor did and charged less.

Oh just can't wait to give them a call Monday morning and hear their explanation now. I really wish I hadn't looked this up online now because it will have me boiling all weekend. These medical professionals may be needed but these types of things should get them put in jail. It's robbery.

just feel lucky you weren't hurt. You could have been raped at the collesium and then raped again by the doctor.

I have no idea how they can expect you to pay for something they didn't do.

that sucks dude...

kids are expensive and it doesn't help when medical bills are outrageous like that...

you think it will get overturned? You know..since there was no surgery? Maybe it was just a 'lets see if he doesn't notice' kind of thing?

That wouldn't surprise me, most people probably wouldn't think twice about something like that if their insurance is paying for it. The whole system is borderline criminal.

I know exactly what you mean. I went to a specialist for a shoulder issue last month. They gave me a shot of some sort of steroid and some cortisone.
I saw the bill, 2 shots came to 3,000 bucks. Thank god for insurance man. What a rip off. They actually called it a surgical procedure. The kicker is my shoulder is no better whatsoever.

it's such a terrible thing man. I really hate how they charge out the ass, I think their logic is if it costs them a dime, then they will charge $100. That seems to be what it is. But it's a pretty evil business they got going there, I think they are in collusion with the pharmecutical companies, the health insurance companies and the companies that make the equipment, all working together to keep prices sky high and forcing honest people into bankrupcy all just so that they can all stay filthy rich.

I'm assuming it is a coding error of some sort but my insurance wouldn't have listed it as a surgery on the EOB if it wasn't billed that way. Either way, this doctor submitted a $1700 bill for taking an xray, looking at his foot and putting a walking boot on that was secured with ****ing velcro.

The ER bill was half that amount and they took xrays as well as put a temporary cast on it. They did more work than this doctor did.
