I'm wondering about a bill

I got this bill for $186.00 in the mail this afternoon. It was the second time they sent me this bill. I got it for going to Siloam Springs Urgent Care clinic to check on a lung infection. I waited in a doctor’s office for around ten or fifteen minutes, and then the doctor showed up. He talked to me about ten or fifteen minutes and then prescribed me some pills. When I got the bill it listed a doctor’s visit and “miscellaneous”. A lot of these billing companies are known to pad their bills shamelessly. I called Siloam Springs Clinic Co. and asked them to send me an itemized bill. If every charge pans out I will pay the bill, but that “miscellaneous” was a real red flag to me.


Good for you,

Asking for an itemized bill.

I would have done the same.

I’m thinking about calling the local paper and seeing if they are interested in doing an expose on how medical collections operations over charge on their bills.

Asking for an itemized bill was the right thing to do.
