just a word about the great folks out there.
i had a little procedure i needed to have done. it wasnt life threatening but it wasnt an option either. it had to be done.
i have no health insurance and i was sure our christmas would have to be cancelled because of this.
i had to make 4 visits to the Dr. there to get this dealt with. my total bill was over $2000. I'm not going to mention his name because i dont know if he wants to give this deal to everyone, but after i got my bill in the mail i went the billing dept there to set up some sort of payment plan and since i didnt have insurance they knocked it down from $2200 to $400, which i paid on the spot.
they didnt have to do that, i didnt even ask them to do it, they just did it.
i cant thank them enough. if you ever need medical care, thats the folks to go see. the care i recieved was top notch and they have a heart. Merry Christmas.

i've been to the hospital emergency room recently, when i told them i didn't have insurance, the woman i spoke to told me that over half the bill would be knocked off (because of being uninsured) if i would set up a payment schedule. guess it happens more often than one would realize.

If we all kept books like these medical facilities, your relatives would be talking to you through a glass or bars. It is the very reason medicare is busted or about to be. No matter what a medical facility charges for an exam, they will only be reimbursed for a certain contracted amount and the rest is wrote off...as a loss or you are responsible for it. So if your test is priced at 2000.00 and they collect 400 from you, they will right the rest off. Now on the other hand, if you have insurance and instead of paying cash they are going to expect the full amount. They make money when you havnt met your deductible and expect the amount in full or put you on the payment plan. They arent as nice and caring as you think. they are in in for the $$$. according to manta they made 40-50 million dollars last year.

all i know is they saved me a shit ton of money and they didnt have to. i dont care about their motives or their profits or anything else. the only bank account im concerned with is mine. and they saved me $3600 bucks and saved christmas for my kids.
they are good people in my book.
i should have known better than to post something positive on this site.
