Ruin my day: I finally have insurance, so I booked a dentist appointment. I thought, "Yes! I won't have to pay for everything!" I got my teeth x-rayed, cleaned, and headed to the secretary's desk to schedule my next appointment.
"That will be $250 for this visit."
"Uh, doesn't my insurance cover this?"
"Yes, but how we do it here is we charge you and then send you a reimbursement check in two to four weeks once your insurance company has paid us."
Passed over my payment. Walked out of there livid.
Tomorrow I change dentists. I've already verified another dentist that takes my insurance and does NOT pull this scam.
I simply don't want to hand over $250 for a month every time I go to the dentist's.
