I recently took my daughter to a doctor in our neighborhood. I took special care to make sure this doctor was a “participating provider,” because I know how important that is to you.
(I made the mistake of going to a “non participating provider” once before and I got stuck with the bill. You can’t say I don’t learn from my mistakes.)
In the course of this visit she had some blood work done. This was mailed away to Tamarac Medical in Colorado for processing. Unfortunately Tamarac Medical is a “non participating provider” and so once again I am getting stuck with the bill, $40.00 in this case.
Note that I was not given any choice over where my daughter’s blood was sent, nor was I informed at the time that a “non participating provider” would be entering into the picture.
Therefore I humbly entreat you to reconsider this judgment against me.
PS: Your claim summary specifies August 28 as the “Paid” date for this claim. Given the fact that Humana has not in fact “paid” anything for this service, don’t you feel that terminology is a bit confusing?
