Elmhurst Clinic Complaint - Billing? They don't care who pays.
ELMHURST, ILLINOIS -- I'd have to say this medical visit was a mixture of good and bad experiences. I liked my doctor a lot and thought I got quality eye care, so at first I was happy with my choice. But then I got my bill and found out that my insurance wouldn't cover it. The reason? I only get covered for the exam, NOT the fitting or glasses/contacts themselves. So guess how they classified it. "Script & Fit Contact." And guess how willing they were to split up the charges. NOT AT ALL. They flat out refused. In fact, they wouldn't even take the charge for an eyeglass script and subtract out the difference! All they did was write a letter explaining it. Of course it didn't fly with the insurance company! What makes it worse is that my doctor kept saying "oh, don't worry, it's free." So, if you like PAYING TWICE for your medical care, then make sure you go here.
