Mom is 92 with dementia and is in memory care unit of an AL facility. I was alarmed to see on her EOB from her secondary insurance a $960+ charge from a lab. Seven tests all listed on 2/19/2021. I received the EOB in October. Insurance declined to pay (with the note that she may receive a bill). A couple months later I saw another EOB where the same lab resubmitted the charges reduced to $500+ for the same date. Insurance paid.
Now in December two more EOB's show charges of $125 and $1,000+ - all still for the same date! Surely this has to be blatant fraud!! But WHO do I talk to about this?
(I went to the director of the facility who said it was charges for testing - and they tested not only for covid, but for any and everything that might be on the test swab. It is ALL important to me that I do not have trouble that forces me to move Mom. But this can't be right. I just don't know who I can go to with this).
