I am a medical doctor, a hematologist, saw patient on an emergency request by the patient's hospital primary care MD. B.S.
refused to pay on the basis of lack of prior authorization and I was not a contract provider, but where to get prior authorization at night? They are not available at but MD are always working. Not enough MD's sign up with them anyway. I am billing the patient now.
The patient now paying double, to B.S. and to me. Next time I will not see their patients. I would ask the other MD what insurance first before I hear the story as I hate to deny care in an emergency situation.
I hope it will not be you, the B.S. patient.
