BGF (me)- 27
I am new to the world of health insurance. Maybe that is why I didn't know that there would still be a radiology bill separate from my orthopedist visit. Had I known I would be getting an xray when I visited the orthopedist for my knee pain back in April, I would've asked if I could visit an imaging center where it costs $35 per knee to xray. That is without insurance. I digress.
ANYWAYS,I get the bill and the due date is 2 weeks after the statement date. I called to ask why I was only given 2 weeks to come up with this money because most people I know don't have $344 lying around. The representative said the first statement is sent with a 2 week due date and if it is not paid by then, another one is sent out with another 2 week due date. After that, your account is sent to collections.
Why the hell would they give you 2 week due-dates without any sort of explanation about the ultimate due date being 30 days from the original statement date?!!?!?!
I had a near anxiety attack about this!!!!! Ridiculous.
Thank you for reading.
