Make sure to check your billing and don't ask questions or you'll get charged for two vists

The doctor came in with an assistant and was pleasant. I went in for an annual check-up and GYN check-up. While I was there I asked a question about a Rash I had on my leg. I explained to the doctor that a friend had lent me an ointment for eczema and it was the only thing that helped but she took it back prior to the entire rash clearing up. She prescribed me something and I left. The question I asked took about 5 minutes. Weeks later I received a bill from the office. I am covered 100% for annual check-ups and preventative measures. Because I had asked a question I was being charged for two visits! I've called repeatedly and told them that they haven't coded the bill correctly. A question should only add on a fee not an entire visit. I couldn't believe how unethical they were and greedy. I am still working with my insurance and can only imagine how stressful someone with more complicated bills may be. They don't have your best interest in mind so be very careful and check your bills. They mis-code to gain the maximum in money from the insurance company. It's an unfortunate extra step but necessary if you don't want to get cheated. I'm still looking for a doctor who cares for their patients from beginning to end.
