It sounds like you may have been there voluntarily. You can ask the hospital for your medical records and see what is in those records. That would be a good start.
I am Durable POA for my son. I have dealt with his banking, IRS, SSI and none of them had a problem with my POA document. I am having a really hard time trying to retrieve his recent medical records for SSI. The facility is saying my document isn't all there. There's 4 pages with my name,... Read more »

Matter Of Fact is not an Attorney-In-Fact nor an agent for the Principal. Hire a competent attorney to examine the executed POA and advise. Is your Son of age? Did the Notary execute it properly? Did the Principal initial all non-signed pages? A new, properly executed instrument is probably in... Read more »

I visited this dentist over two years ago and they apparently made a billing error with the change over to a new system. I never received a bill. I had been seeing a different dentist and I recently decided to go back to this office. I made an appointment and was informed of a $250 balance. I... Read more »

SOL has not run on that services charge yet. You might compute your balance and then call them offering payment of the same. Do not send a check, but use a money order. Otherwise they will know where to collect a judgment.
It's a 5 speed truck and it rolled into the road. It wasn't started and was in the off position. They charged me with DUI and impeding traffic. Is this consistent with the law? I was curious because of the good Samaritan law
answered on Aug 4, 2022
TN has always prosecuted anyone for DUI that had the capability of driving or the LEO suspected he had been driving earlier.

A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Until you're able to discuss with a Tennessee attorney who could address state-specific health care law, the basic rule nationwide is that a doctor is generally free to dismiss a patient (unless it involves...

A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks.

Hand delivered, with a signature, 68 requests for patient’s medical records, 12 weeks later we have not heard anything. Wrote an email and received a reply requesting $400 for the records. Is this legal?

A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. As a general matter nationwide, medical offices or their chart management vendors do charge fees for medical records. If the file is small, some offices provide free records as a courtesy. There are public health... Read more »

LPC assault a minor child in a parking lot.

It should not if the LPC gets a competent attorney. The charge needs to be Diverted, Dismissed and Expunged. It is possible the Regulatory Agency will never know.
I settled over an $800+ bill in court and paid it off. Now the same collection agency on behalf of the same hospital, is saying i owe another $1900+ from previous service dates before the aforemention $800+ bill. Is this even legal? What should i do?
answered on Aug 11, 2020
Could be legal. Sounds like you only settled one bill. Without seeing the other bills, it's hard to say whether they can collection for various issues including statutes of limitations. Consult local counsel to best determine your options.

My divorce was final June 3ed after many delays. No formal notice was issued to my spouse.
answered on Jun 22, 2020
There is no 30 day rule. I assume you are talking about an Appeal or setting aside the MDA. You were supposed to inform the Spouse of the Termination Of Insurance. In effect, you have lied to the Court. The Spouse has grounds to Set Aside the Divorce, possibly up to 1 year from Judgment.

Normally, a power of attorney can simply be ended by the rejection of the POA. However, it this is court ordered as you question suggests, he will need to retain counsel, file a petition and have a hearing to prove the POA is no longer needed.

I have sent the COB on multiple occasions. I have even called and informed them they are my primary insurance. My other insurance is federally funded and even they admit they should pick up what Aetna does not cover. What should I do?
answered on Jul 11, 2019
You may want to consult with an attorney. This could be a case that could be solved by sending a demand letter to Aetna explaining the facts and your position that they should cover you. If that does not work you may have to litigate the issue. I recommend you bring all the relevant documents and... Read more »
