PA Labs. Complaint - Should I Bother with Insurance?
FORT WAYNE, INDIANA -- My doctor wanted me to have a panel workup since I am diabetic with HBP. PA Labs. is close by, so I went there. My doctor had made a bureaucratic mistake on the script for the tests. She had not coded diabetes but had written it out in English. The attendant informed me that if my regular insurance didn't cover the tests, then, Medicare (my secondary insurer) might not cover--she knew the code but must accept what ever the doctor writes. The attendant wanted to sign a financial responsibility form for $66 for the test in question. I had to insist that they get in touch with the doctor to have a correct script faxed over for their records. The attendant clearly believed that I would end up paying for this test despite having two forms of insurance, and she clearly didn't care if I did end up paying for the test.
