Read Complaint Details
Complaint: On Sept. 5th I went to the Christus St. Mary MINOR care facility located at 8445 Memorial Blvd, Port Arthur, TX 77640. The doctor saw me and looked in my ears and throat, and I was given a shot. I had NO tests, NO X-Rays, NO treatments--nothing. Upon checking out I was told by the receptionist that I owed a $50 co-pay for minor care facilities, which I paid before leaving. Today I received a bill that I owed an additional $50. I called their business office and was told it was because I had an ER visit. I told them it was a minor care visit, but they told me the insurance told them it was an ER visit. I called my insurance and they said that Christus billed an ER visit at Christus St. Mary HOSPITAL. This is the second time Christus has done this. The last time I agreed to pay the extra money because they said it was considered an ER visit due to the level of care (x-rays, breathing treatments, and shots). This time however, I did not receive any higher level of care than I would in and doctor's office. I called my insurance and they called the business office and was told that they would "review" my case and possibly resubmit it. I am furious, Christus billed me over $1000 for a doctor's visit. They billed for two ER visits and an additional $586 in "general medical services." I tried to resolve it with them, my insurance tried to resolve it with them, and all they will tell us is that they will "look into it." At best, Christus made a mistake which they should immediately remedy, at worst they perpetrated fraud by billing for services at facilities that I was no where near.
Desired Settlement: I expect Christus to re-submit the bill with proper information, and refund what they over-billed my insurance. I also expect them to remove the $50 balance due on my account, AND to send me a letter that they were in error and that ALL I owe is the $50 I've already paid. I do not want to get a bill, or a call from a collection agency, 2-3 years down the road claiming that I owe Christus $50.
Dear Ms. Cobb,
We have completed the investigation for the Complaint reported by ******** ******* ID10846170. As Ms. ******* reported, she paid $50 at the time of visit. We found the charges to be appropriate with the services delivered. Ms. ******* also reported there remains a balance of $50 on her account for this visit. As a gesture of goodwill, we have made the decision to adjust this balance to zero. We would like to apologize to Ms. ******* for the delayed communication and follow up she experienced when questioning the bill.
