Options for Medical Billing Fraud
i teach part time. My school district wanted a renewed TB test. The city clinic is closed. I scheduled an appointment with my doctor for the TB test. i went for the prick on a Friday and returned the next Monday for the reading. It was all handled by an assistant or technician. At the reading I passed my doctor in the hall, and he waved at me. He may have stuck his head in the door to say "hi'. He certainly never examined me or came near me. I was shocked today to see the billing statements. He billed Medicare and my Medigap plan for about $350, which included a doctor patient visit. Most was paid by the Medigap Insurer, a bit by Medicare. I have a $21 co-pay.
There are paid clinics that give these tests for about $38, but most of them are for specific groups like Asian Health Clinic, etc. which is why I went to my primary care doctor.
Shall I report this as Medicare fraud? Or just let it go.
By the way, looking for recommendations for another primary care doctor.
