Misslead on Doctor being in my Network

I am really just venting over being mislead about my Doctor being in my network when I signed up with Humanna.As it turned out my Doctor is not in my network. Unluckily I discovered this after my first visit last month. The cost for the Annual/First visit was approx $1K . Humanna paid $71.( no wonder Doctors don't want to take Medicare patients) my part <so far> is $250. and waiting for more bills to come in. I am not sure, but I think if I just had straight Medicare I would have come out better. I haven't decided to change coverage yet, but I am changing Doctors, but I am afraid to see what my part of the bill will be when I go to this Doctor. I am told that since I did not get the Welcome to Medicare or what ever the first visit is. That I can still get it. I just need to get the first Bill paid off before I risk it again. Of course Humanna just keeps repeating that my Doctor is out of net, even though I was told my Doctor was. But one things for sure. At this time I would not recommend Humanna to anyone. As a mater of fact I would tell everyone to Not get Humanna for their Medicare provider.
