In my opinion !
There are some very strange things going on with ETMC and the billing practices of the group. If you are not insured and are a cash paying customer they offer a 30% discount on all services from going to the doctor to all sorts of procedures and testing. NOW, through many others complaints we are finding that ETMC gives you the discounts, charges you for all the services they provide minus the 30% discount and then bills you for the discounts WILL send the amount to collections if it is not paid within 30 days. Where does this come from and why are these people allowed to do this. I get a discount, pay the bill in full and then the discounted amounts are sent to collections? WTF ? We all want to talk about how the federal government wants to take control of our lives and we fail to realize that corporate america and greed takes more control in a shorter amount of time than that of the federal agencies. By damaging your credit file, sending you nasty letters, then sell the account to others while there are derogatory remarks placed in your FICO file, then they refuse to remove or update the information. I am glad we now have federal health care to stop this fleecing mindset of the greed! To hell with all of the doctors that make these decisions and the business managers that are gasping for more while ruining the credit ratings of us that work hard to protect it. Screw All of you !

I didn't have any problem with that same arangement, but that was a couple of years ago. What did the hospital say about it?
