Blue Cross/Blue Shield - Denial AFTER Pre-Authorization?!?
Health Insurance - Complaint
MASSACHUSETTS -- My 4 yr old son had to have oral surgery. It was to be done at a hospital, due to the extent of care needed and his age (he had to be "put under"). After receiving a pre-authorization letter from Blue Cross/Blue Shield that listed the providers name and date of services, they denied the claim. $7306.07 for the anesthesia and hospital facilities. That, in combination with the $3400 bill from the dentist, is outrageous. We would have never agreed to this treatment if it was covered by both the dental insurance and health insurance. Now, we're stuck with this bill and it is an extreme hardship for my family.
