I went to a dermatologist and had a my moles checked for skin cancer. When the lady was done she said she found 2 that were questionable. I asked her how much it would be to have them removed and she gave 2 different prices. One was for removal only and the other was removal and a biopsy. Before they removed them and sent them for a biopsy, I asked her if that was my total price, she said yes. I have no insurance so i went ahead paid the bill in full before i left. Anyways, yesterday i get a bill from the lab that did the biopsy. I was never told by the dermatologist that there would be a bill from the lab also. When i got the bill, i called the dermatologist and they acted like it was my fault, because i should have known better. So my question is, should they be liable for my bill since they failed to tell me about the lab charge. Thanks!
No, you can't make them pay this cost. It's annoying, but this is standard medical billing practice, and you didn't quite ask the right question. Take it as a learning experience.
