Minnesota Oncology

They talk about how strange people look at you when you want to know the cost of tests and procedures, in this film called PlantPure Nation. I am there with the guy! People do respond in very negative ways when I ask for the cost from the business office.
A good example would be the completely ineffective oncologist that came into my room and visited me in hospital twice. Jon Phillips​ asked the guy to leave two seconds into the second visit because he was offering nothing and I didn’t plan on seeing ANY oncologist. I was charged for both of his annoying visits to the tune of $2000 billed to my insurance. That bill is separate from my $83,890 hospital bill. I owe $4400 of the hospital bill, and $900 to the oncologists, who won’t get paid.
They won’t get paid because it’s wrong to bill someone that doesn’t even want you in their room. These organizations think that the old paradigm still works. Oh hell no. We asked you to leave, you aren’t a lawyer, there is no tacit agreement,ent that says “Come in my room and bill me an exorbitant amount of money for nothing.”
It’s unfathomable to me that I was captive! In my room! I didn’t ask for this doctor to come into my room. We asked him to leave. We got billed for the privilege. Unreal.
Now that I think about it, it doesn’t make any sense since they weren’t even the oncologist of record. These doctors are worse than ambulance chasers!
