Chester Valley Rehabilation & Nursing Center - Fraudulent Billing

Nursing Care - Complaint

PENNSYLVANIA -- I was a patient for about 4 months in 2011 and was covered mostly by Medicare. But before I could even leave they wanted access to my bank account which I refused. However I had to give them my credit card from which they were to withdraw $1500. But when I got my credit card statement they made charges totaling $8000, maxing out my card and costing me over $100 a month in just interest. Numerous calls get nowhere and they refuse to even send me an itemized bill verifying the charges.

I have many other medical bills to pay and have 4 collection agencies after me and my house will go up for tax lean in December, but these people couldn't care less.

In the meantime I found another patient that did give their bank account access and they wiped out the entire account.

These people are absolutely vicious when it comes to money.

It's too late to challenge the charge. You probably need an attorney to represent you to sort this matter out. Call the Pennsylvania Bureau of Consumer Protection (local office at 21 South 12th St., 2nd Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19107) at (215) 560-2414 to seek assistance and to see if they can get someone to help you, pro bono, if necessary.

There is probably a patient advocate or elderly abuse agency in your area. Contact them, they can often get bills lowered after taking a long, informed look at them
