Windsor, CO asked in Consumer Law and Health Care Law for Colorado

Q: Can a Dr office charge you more money for your bill after you have paid it in full?

Was seen at an urgent care, paid cash for my bill, & no insurance was charged.

Dr office is now saying they made an error in billing & that I owe more money. I asked for an itemized bill & they are double charging me for an injection fee.

Is this something they can do?

A: A Colorado attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. Until you have the chance to consult with a local attorney to look at the claim under state-specific laws, generally speaking it could depend the plan, the time period, applicable fee schedules for the procedure, whether under the carrier's rules, W.C. fee schedules, public health fee schedules, or other, for the region. Good luck
