Title: ASC facility Charge
Post by: merdad55 on December 31, 2011, 05:14:58 PM
A medical facility is suing me for medical bill for a surgical procedure which was not pre-approved or not even mentioned in surgery operative report for $20,000! they now saying it is for facility fees! obviously a 1.5 hour endodontic back surgery- no over night stay or any special treatment- should not cost $20,000! does anyone know any expert witness to provide me with expert opinon for reasonable charges for such ambulatory outpatient surgery! I live in Jersey City, NJ close to NYC! any help appreciated!
thanks

Sorry but I don't know of anyone.  You should check with your insurance carrier to see if the provider was in network.
