Carle Clinic in Urbana, Illinois Complaint - Far Above and Beyond
URBANA, ILLINOIS -- I have had a history of foot problems, so I made an appointment at the Carle Clinic in Urbana, Illinois. I was planning on possibly going ahead with the foot surgery that the doctor recommended. However, when I got my insurance "explanation of benefits", I discovered the Carle Clinic is not part of the network for Blue Cross/Blue Shield, so my insurance would not cover the charges as well.
Furthermore, Blue Cross/Blue Shield determined that the $160.00 charge is above and beyond what the is a fair price for my office visit.
Most medical places will write off the charges that are above reasonable and customary, but upon calling the Clinic this morning, they proudly stated that they are well within the means and will not reduce my bill.
I will not hesitate to find another medical establishment for any further medical treatments for my husband and myself.
