so three weeks ago my dentist's office scheduled a cleaning and exam and told me i had to make a second appointment to fix a filling.

i showed up at the second appointment and they just did the same exam again because "they shouldn't have scheduled the first one" and then tried to schedule the root canal again.

worse yet, the extra exam blew through my benefits even though i called ahead of the second one and asked them if i'd be covered and they said that it would. when i got there and they told me that, no, they would not be covering it and it would cost me $300 to do the exam a second time (they didn't tell me this until after it was over, prior to going in i was just told "we'll talk about billing after you finish"), i asked the billing lady why it changed and she initially answered that "the last appointment used the last of your benefits and apparently the person you talked to didn't read my note" then when i asked if she thought it was okay to make me pay $300 on an appointment that i would've cancelled if i had known because someone didn't read a note, she told me "well, actually they didn't know that because the last appointment had fees that hadn't processes yet" and when i asked her which one it was she scolded me for "not doing a better job tracking my benefits". then i tried to explain that i did, by calling ahead and double checking costs and i was given inaccurate information, and she then said "well, sorry, they didn't know about all of the fees that hadn't been processed".

at that point, i began yelling.

If you're not a hard ass about checking every microscopic second about what something is going to cost you just get hammered. You're the only one representing your financial interests. And you're supposed to be doing this while receiving medical treatment.

she told me that getting a printout mailed to me would be better than calling ahead and i asked if the printout would be more accurate and cover all of the non-processed fees and she didn't answer me directly.

Swelling went down, feels dead again. I will live with this stone of torment...for now. Dentistry is a giant cartel of shitheads. I worked on dental plan shit for a while and all of their business practices were either good ol american hucksterism or "how is that legal" price fixing (which it isnt, dental plans paid like 100 mil after losing a court case a few years ago over this)

if I learned anything in high school it's that you gotta smoke through your nose or you'll get dry socket

Way to go blogger it's hard to go through this shit but you did it.

(unless like me you gotta go back and do more follow ups in which case you're still doing it)
