Complaint: When I picked up my walker in April 2014 (ordered 1/24/14), before taking it home, I asked what I would be responsible for, the woman went to look at some papers, came back and said, “No more than $25.00”. Because of this answer, I took the walker home. If I knew it would be more or the possibility of it being more out of pocket expense then I would have reconsidered accepting the walker and looked for a different option. They should’ve checked with both of my insurance carriers prior to giving me the item. I ordered in January-they had plenty of time to bill insurance.
Desired Settlement: To pay no more than I was quoted when I picked it up, $25.99
This client purchased a walker and had two separate insurances and unfortunately he had not met his deductible on either one which makes him responsible for payment. If he has any further complaints he can call Medicare and Harvard Pilgrim and they will fill him in on his insurance benefits. Unfortunately, we can’t control and individual’s insurance policy we are held responsible for knowing if we have met a deductible or not. I am sorry this individual does not want to take responsibility for his insurance issues but we have done nothing wrong.
Thank you for informing us of this issue, but as far as I am concerned the issue is closed.
