Regina, YOU GO GIRL!!! Will you go with me to my Drs. appts? I need someone to be blunt and strong! Which reminds me, When I had my adhesion surgery, the Dr. wanted $ down ahead of time, even though I had good insurance. Well, after the insurance paid,(they paid 100%, because they were a preferred provider.) I had a credit of a few hundred dollars and I had to fight for a few months to get that money back. I won't ever pay more than my co-pay again. They would have turned me over to collections if they had to wait like I did. Don' t quote me,I may be wrong but if the Drs. office has a contract with the insurance company, the only thing they are supposed to ask you to pay for up front is your Co-pay.That is the way it is where I live. I work in a medical office. It seems like most of the time, surgeons don't ask for $ up front unless you don't have insurance. They wait and see what your insurance pays first. Kel
