Default Labcorp Collections

Are these people for real. I get a bill for $22 from them threatening to move me up to the next level of collection enforcement if I don't make arrangments to pay today. I don't get it. My insurance company paid them, apparently not enough. Do they have the right to collect from me? I never signed an agreement with them or engaged them directly (blood taken at my dr). Can they just invoice for what they want and chase you down for what insurance does not pay?

If you have insurance...

...they can chase you down for a co-pay, deductible or any other difference between what the insurance company paid them and the negotiated price for that service. They cannot make you pay the difference between the price they negotiated with your insurance company and the price they'd like to charge. Read the EOB your insurance company should have sent you.

Little Medical billing note......Never supply your SS number for medical services........Most Insurance Companies no longer use your SS# as your account Number.......If they do not have your Social they will have a tough time attaching the lien to just a name! I have been refusing for years and the Dr's office never push the issue!

Got that once for some of the Admirals work ups. Turns out it was a clerical error in a code submitted for billing. Simple mistake but had to call two or three time to get it straight.

What is the $22 charge for? Might be a charge for a service that your insurance company thinks is BS so won't pay and now they are going after you for it.

More trouble with billing mistakes from these clowns than ALL OTHERS COMBINED. The good news is that they usually get it fixed after we submit some documentation.

Yes, medical billing is very complicated.

Yes, Labcorp needs to learn to deal properly with it - most other providers have.
