Hi, Last summer, I went to the ER and was billed for three services - the ER facility fee, the ER doctor's fee, and the fee for the CT scan I received. My insurance paid the ER facility and ER doctor's fees, but did not pay for the CT scan. My insurance company covers almost everything, and they've never denied a claim before - they're stating that they have never even received the claim for the CT scan, and therefore certainly didn't deny it. I discovered this after it was posted to my CR by a JDB. I contacted the JDB, and they agreed to remove it for 60 days but would place it back on my CR if the bill was not paid by that point. The JDB also stated that they would contact the radiology firm and ask them to *correctly* bill it to my insurance company. I've asked the JDB to send me a copy of the bill so I can attempt to send it to my insurance company to have it rebilled, but they've not sent one to me. The issue is, I'm certain that the radiology firm incorrectly billed my insurance company, and they essentially refuse to rebill them or give me a copy of my statement so that I could have the opportunity to either pay it or send it to my insurance company for reconsideration. I've asked the JDB and the radiology firm (had to email them as they don't have a public phone number) to resubmit the bill to my insurance, but they're both essentially playing dumb and saying that it was declined by my insurance - which again, even if was declined, there's no reason why they can't resubmit it - they're really making it difficult for me and I'm not sure what to do at this point. It's the only negative thing on my CR and I'm really upset about it as all it would take was a simple rebilling to get this situation resolved. Advice?
