Phoenix, AZ asked in Arbitration / Mediation Law, Products Liability and Collections for Arizona

Q: who can help me now that I disputed medical bill balance & they negotiated the check with pmt in full written on it?

A medical office billed for two types of visits on one day, which they didn't perform. I got the bill and have sent them the dispute, called and left messages and then sent check for the one visit, writing pd in full on the check. They cashed it and now sent me a bill adding 32.00 for late fees. Who do I report it to and how do I cite the statute to get them to stop?

thank you

A: Your best bet, on such an insignificant claim, is to either sue in small claims court, or turn over the matter to your State consumer protection agency. Double billing can also be a crime, in certain circumstances.
