Re: Question about OB office
It doesn't matter what your insurance pays or doesn't pay, office policy is office policy and you would have signed something at your first visit. If you can't make arrangements, you will need to find a new provider but you are still responsible for the charges incurred up to the point you leave that practice. They can also sue you if you don't pay. It sounds like the $900 credit card might be an HSA or flex spending card, in which case you CAN use that to pay the provider before you receive the final bill. Offices have policies like this because it isn't fair to the provider to treat a patient for 9-12 months before getting paid. Would you want to have to wait a year before getting a paycheck?
