I am having an issue where I could get screwed out of $5000 or so , My wife has TMJ and we went to a dentist to get it fixed , foolishly I agreed to pay them upfront and collect the $ from United Health Care , BIG MISTAKE , after over a year of back and forth about paperwork ect. They claim that the fair and reasonable and customary price for this procedure is $480 , so I am potentially screwed out of $4500. the only thing I can think of doing is to file an appeal . Does anyone know a better Idea? I was thinking about getting written estimates from other dentists for the same procedure and using that in the appeal . any advice would be greatly appreciated . I would also like any one reading this not to make the same stupid mistake I made.
DONT LET ANYONE TALK YOU INTO DEALING WITH INSURANCE COMPAIES YOURSELF.
