 |  FRAUD AND GREED  |  show details
by BEADINGGAL on Oct 22nd, 2013

HAD OUTPATIENT GI SURGERY WITH SHAH...HE SUBMITTED FRAUDULENT CLAIM TO INSURANCE CO. FOR A 1 HOUR+ CONSULTATION ($427) PLUS HIS FEE FOR THE 42 MINUTE SURGERY ($1800+). WE "CONSULTED" FOR AT MOST 5 MINUTES PRIOR TO THE PROCEDURE. FRAUDULENT BILLING PROCEDURES. I REPORTED HIS FRAUD TO CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF INSURANCE. I SPOKE TO HIS OFFICE WHO WOULD NOT TAKE THE "CONSULTATION" CHARGE OFF MY BILL. THEY ALSO DENIED THEY HAD BILLED FOR THE "1 HOUR+" CONSULTATION, BUT I HAVE THE BILL, WHICH I HAVE TO PAY A LARGE PORTION OF, FROM MY INSURANCE THAT STATES IT WAS BILLED AS A 1 HOUR+ PROCEDURE. NEEDLESS TO SAY, I AM NOT PAYING HIS BILL. ISN'T $1800+ FOR 45 MINUTES OF WORK ENOUGH MONEY FOR THIS DOCTOR? I HAVE NEVER ENCOUNTERED A DOCTOR SO GREEDY, AND ACTUALLY, CRIMINAL. HE ALSO SAID HE WOULD RETURN ANY CALLS I MADE TO HIM AFTER THE PROCEDURE AND HE NEVER DID, PROBABLY BECAUSE HE COULD NOT BILL FOR A PHONE CALL.
