I am SO TIRED OF DEALING WITH MORONS!
I just got a letter from a health care provider that assisted in my surgery back in August.
This was not a covered vendor according to my insurance company, but after arguing that the surgery took place in a covered hospital by a covered doctor, and I had no control over which assistants were used, I got the insurance company to agree that it was covered, and they sent me a check in my name that I signed over to the health care provider and sent to them back in September.
Now I get a collection notice from them, since they say they have NOT received the check!
I immediately called the insurance company, who was actually very helpful; they said the check never was cashed, so they are stopping payment on that and are issuing me a new check. But it takes up to 10 business days for me to receive it.
I then called the health care provider and asked why I haven’t heard anything about this until just now, and they say they have sent me 3 notices. I think I would have remembered that, I stay on top of these kind if things…
Plus, I very clearly remember sending them the check; I even called their office and confirmed the address!
But the lady I talk to is a total BITCH, and she acts like I am some kind of dead beat, even though the problem is probably because someone in her office misplaced the check and messed up… I just wanted to strangle her!
She says she cannot call back the collection agency until she gets a payment, I did not ask for that, I just called to let her know that the problem is being taken care of and that perhaps she can put a note about this in my account. But she insists I pay them with a credit card immediately! I do not want to pay something with a credit card and occur interest when the insurance company has re-issued a check that is on its way… It is only $150, no big deal, but this is just a matter of principles!
Stuff like this just gets me boiling mad being treated like shit when I have done NOTHING WRONG!
Just don’t lose this check too, bitch, I am sending it CERTIFIED MAIL so I HAVE PROOF YOU HAVE RECEIVED IT!!!
As you can tell, I am not very fond of moron people trying to blame me for their mistakes... Now I need a little yoga and some calm breathing.... :-)
