Additional Notes

Complaint: They took $147 from me, under the pretense that it was going to my ******** deductible. My ******** deductible had already been met. They said that they checked and it had not. On my ******** statement it shows that. It also shows that they, Associated Medical, have been paid in full from ******** and my plan. It also does not show anywhere the $147 that I gave them.I have called to have them return my money and they will not. This was not only a mistake, but fraudulent.

Desired Settlement: I would like my $147 returned.

Business Response: *** ****** has both ******** and a secondary insurance of ******** ****. When she was serviced by our company, the insurance portal that we are required to use showed that she had not yet met her deductible and that she also had a co-insurance payment. As is standard in the healthcare industry today in the durable medical equipment sector, the portion due to be paid by *** ****** was collected at the time of service.

Upon receiving this complaint today, I immediately researched this. *** ****** had called our billing department on March 3rd and reported that she has received an *********** ** ******** ***** stating that her insurance has paid us on her behalf. However, we have not received this EOB nor have we received payment. Our Director of Billing assured *** ****** during that call that she would watch for the EOB and any possible payment and would absolutely refund *** ****** as soon as anything arrived.

I called *** ****** to review this with her today and asked that she send a copy of the EOB that she received to us since we have still not received anything. She agreed to fax that to me tomorrow. I will review this as soon as it is received and get back to her.

Consumer Response:  
Complaint:********

I am rejecting this response because:  I do not really reject it.  It is just not a solution.
I trekked to fax my EOB three times, but only the cover page went through.  I will try again tomorrow morning.  

Incidentally, I called three times.  
None of my other providers, to whom I have since paid my deductible, required payment at the time of service.  
Sincerely,
**** ******
