A: These types of cases can sometimes be difficult, since it appears that you paid out of pocket for services rendered. It would be easier to evaluate services submitted to insurance companies for reimbursement, where you could look line by line at each procedure and its code. The best you could do is review the bill(s) and services rendered. If the services were medically/dentally justifiable and the prices were reasonable per commonly used fee schedules, it could be difficult to contest. You could consult with a California attorney or look further into small claims and try determine whether it would be cost-effective to pursue the matter. Good luck
