I am so angry... I received a $430 bill from the Lab my doctor sent my 3-month mark exams as the insurance said the following exams are my responsibility to pay:
vitamin D, 25-hydroxy, lc/ms/ms
vitamin b12, serum
TSH, 3rd generation
is this common? as you can see, my insurance doesn't pay for WLS, and I had to pay it myself to do it in Mexico... but now this too? if my doctor found those exams necessary, how can an insurance refuse to pay for them? can someone clarify, as I am not originally from here and am not super familiar with insurance issues?
my doctor recommended to fw the bill to the billing dept of medical group she belongs to but I haven't heard back from them for 4 weeks now which I complained today.
what would you guys do to get this paid? should I mention at all to my insurance I did WLS etc? should I call them myself or have the billing dept call them instead?
