Awful and outrageous billing practices

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
I am 56 years old. Was a Scripps patient for 35 years, all of them at the Torrey pines campus, until last year that is. Had outpatient surgery for kidney stone on mid September of 2017. It was the most painful and awful experience of my life and I was left sorely disappointed with the post surgery care and attention to basic patient education and care. I felt like I was a head of sheep constantly rushed through the system. Yet all this did not prepare me for the worst that Scripps had to dish out: "billing". Not only was I billed an outrageous amount for this outpatient procedure ($70,000 pre insurance; $7,000 out of pocket), but one year past surgery, I continue to receive bills from Scripps, a total of 4 bills amounting to another $1,000 in probably illegitimate fees. As of Jan 2017 I left Scripps for Sharp Rees Steely, and not only are their doctors better, but they actually spend time with you and their billing is fair and timely. I demand that Scripps stop billing me one year later. This is maddening. I am seriously considering a class action lawsuit against Scripps billing, their practices smell fishy to say the least and I can only imagine what a forever lawyer may dig up under discovery....oh boy, this would be a pleasure to watch.... Go ahead Scripps keep pushing your luck.

I also had a really bad experience with the billing department, now why would they bill my insurance for two therapy sessions after I got out of the hospital when I NEVER had therapy treatment done, figure that one. my recommendation is check your hospital bills before you pay it. Now I have to dispute my bill.

I am having the same issues. Every few weeks I get bills for items already paid.

Always charging my insurance for work comp. “ it’s okay there is no Co-pay.” Is what I was told when they charged me for an X-ray that should have been charged to work comp.

Many issues. There are now going back and charging me co-pays from 2017.
