Hi, all. So in 2019 I was admitted to the hospital to get my appendix removed. I get my insurance through my union so I provided everything they asked for.
Last week I received a letter from collections for a 5100 dollar bill. Then I called the office of the anesthesiologist. They said they been sending me letters which I’ve never gotten and whenever they called me that my voice mail wasn’t set up.
They told me I never provided any insurance information that day.
I called up my insurance and they said they never got a bill from them and since it’s been more than a year that, they won’t pay for it and that I shouldn’t be responsible for this bill.
And this is what makes no sense. My insurance got a bill from the hospital, surgeon and laboratory but nothing came from the anesthesiologist.
So now the anesthesiologist said i should be responsible for this bill and that there’s nothing they can do about it.
When I spoke to the debt collectors, they are willing to reduce the bill to 1300
At this point, it’s like I’m going back and forth between the 3 of them.
Any advice would be appreciated.
