So after getting my BFP I called to make an appointment with the best OB around here…. She is accepting new patients! I had her as an OB when I was in high school, then I moved away! Well I was using another GYNO since I’ve moved back because my previous insurance wasn’t accepted a t the good Dr’s office…. Wel I have new great insurance and this doc delivers at the hospital I want to have the baby at. (the hospital in the next town has sent babies home with the wrong parents like 4 times! NOT going there)
Ok so I call to get this appointmnet and they tell me they can’t see me!? Confused I try to find out why and they tell me over a $53 charge that was sent to collections in 2008. Now this charge was paid immediately after I found otu it was sent to collections! It was part of a bill that my DAD’S insruance didn’t pay from when I was in HS, and his factory closed so everything was all screwy. The bill is paid, it’s 5 years old and from a huge factory shut down and they’re refusing to see me!!! I’m so upset and dont know what to do!

@emersynsmommy35: First of, Congratulations lady! I had no idea that you alrady got your BFP so YAY!!!!! and second, they are being so pathetic for not taking you, just cause 5 years ago you didnt pay a bill, which is now paid. Can you go their office and speak to a supervisor or someone who will understand the fact that you already paid this bill. Also, you can also call the hospital where you want to deliver and speak to head of the GYNO department and they can direct to another doctor, who might take you without so much drama. GL and again I wish you a Happy and Healthy 9 months!!!! ;))))))))))

Do you have proof of the paid bill? If you can dig it up, I would walk into the office with it and speak with the office manager/supervisor to clear up the confusion.

So i had a similiar problem with my daughters peditirican, which I ended up switching anyways because I was so mad! Here’s what i did and i got apologizes really quick. Call back ask for the head of billing, make sure they know what you are being told. If it is associated with a hospital call the hospital and ask for their hed of billing. Then reach out to the doctor and see if they are aware of whats going on. Trust me if you make all the calls in one day you will shake things up a bit.
