In December 2018 I came to the hospital for heart attack like symptoms. I was seen promptly. A chest X-ray and an EKG were done. I had smoked marijuana hours prior to my visit, and was not high during my visit. After finding out I didn’t have a heart attack, I was discharged. I was told to quit smoking marijuana.
Turns out, I had a panic attack from being allergic to tobacco smoke. The doctors did not tell me any of this nor pursued a diagnosis after learning I had smoked marijuana. I learned this from comparing symptoms on the internet.
Still, multiple bills adding up to $6000 came my way. I paid them with an HSA card, and now, 9 months after the fact, I am being told I did not pay a physicians fee. The physician that did not take me seriously or help me after he learned I smoked weed? I paid both bills I was sent, and learned TODAY, NINE MONTHS LATER, a bill I did not see in my mail, has been sent to collections. WE ALREADY PAID $6000 FOR BAD HEALTHCARE IN THE ER. I am trying to see if I can get a record of what companies/agencies my HSA card already paid towards. I distinctly remember being told that one bill I paid was for the hospital, and the other one I paid was for the physician.
All in all - doctors did not take me seriously or offer a diagnosis, did not even tell me I was having a panic attack, and nine months after the fact, after $6000 has ALREADY been paid, I am getting a surprise bill from a physician I AM SURE I ALREADY PAID. Would not ever visit this hospital ever again.
