Huntsville Hospital Complaint - Billing
HUNTSVILLE, ALABAMA -- In my opinion Huntsville Hospital commits Insurance Fraud. I was admitted to this hospital earlier this year and informed everyone in charge of my care that I had lost my insurance in October 04 and that I needed to speak to someone from the business office. In fact I was released by my doctor to help me keep cost down and allowed to come back to have the operation. That is two admissions and each time as I went through the admission process I told them I had no insurance. Yet when all was said and done they billed the insurance company and was paid by the insurance company and billed me for the deductible. I paid that and paid the doctor bills on my Visa. They sent me a statement saying my account was paid in full. The insurance company caught the mistake and took their money back. Of course I am now being billed by the hospital. Isn't this fraud if they knew I had no insurance and billed the company anyway? Does anyone have advise on this problem and how I can get the hospital to work with me? Also they are billing me for the full amount not the amount they billed the insurance company for.
