Apria HealthCare - Unauthorized Payment

Posted: 2015-04-30 by    Nalo01
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
Apria healthcare make an unauthorized payment on my card even though I specifically told them not to pull any money from my card. Prior to this I already set up an payment plan with them/I ask for a letter stating this agreement on february-april o3.15 of $50.00 and by doing so this will clear out the remaing balance. On april.16.15 agent call me to extend my payments more and specifically told them I cannot do that right now and being firm on to not pull any money out from my debit/visa account and will notify them when i can get back on the payment plan. Agent was very well set on not negotiate...

I had an appointment scheduled for 1-5pm today. This window was given to me by a human, call from Apria automation along with confirmed by automation via status check. When no one showed up, I called and held for 15 minutes. I gave up and called an hour later. I was told I wasn't scheduled until 3 days later. Which was the original day I was told. They moved up the date when I insisted they come earlier due to my mothers nurse feeling the concentrator wasn't working properly. The person at the other end could care less that we had given up an entire afternoon waiting for nothing. He wouldn't...

I was told in October 2014 that the equipment can not be guaranteed unless someone comes out an services the equipment. I have tried on November, December, and January. When you call for an appointment they give you a date. No one comes out or even calls. I am ready to get another company for equipment unless someone comes out.....

Apria HealthCare - Customer Service

I've been talked down to, interrupted, etc. Their customer service is so piss poor it's embarrassing. Because of the horrible customer service, we've switched my mother's services to LinCare (They are awesome - especially with what we've been through with Apria). They are making threats to make it so her insurance company will not pay for oxygen equipment if we leave them, as there are only 2 options. Option 1, sign a release for discontinuing services against doctor orders. Option 2, get a prescription from a doctor. Neither of these the case. They've picked the wrong...

My mother who was hospitalized at Beth Israel in Boston for an extended period of time but was about to be released. A representative from Apria Healthcare, came to her room with a Nebulizer per her doctors’ request. She indicated that in order to release the equipment, she needed a credit card and that there would be no charges placed against the card. I expressed concern about releasing credit card information; especially to someone who was essentially a stranger entering the room. I also expressed concern several times about the card being charged regardless of her assurances. After repeated...

Apria HealthCare - Fraudulent Charges

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 5 votes
I was billed by Apria in January of 2014 for charges stemming from 2012. When I looked at my Explanations of Benefits, a statement on the bottom indicate that the charges given by Apria were part of a negotiated amount, and I, as the patient, was not responsible for the charges. I contacted their customer service multiple times, and was threatened each time before being able to explain what my insurance company had told me. My insurance company contacted them and conducted a three-way conference call. When told to cease and desist by my insurance company, Apria immediately backed down and stated...

Apria HealthCare - Misinformation

Total lack of customer service. Stated that I would not have any charges from my medical insurer. Delivered machine, 6 months later began receiving bills. They received payment from the medical insurer and then insurer collects from the patient. That is not what they stated when I asked the specific questions. Spent over two hours with customer lack of service and spoke to team lead "Heidi" who could care less and the resolution was I pay, they use my situation as training for their customer service team! Wow Had been a loyal customer for over 12 years but taking my business elsewhere....

Apria HealthCare - Billing Practices Suspect

We switched insurance companies and my prior insurance company leased the CPAP machine I'd had for years. When Apria first contacted me regarding new insurance, the representative would not tell me why he needed all the personal information he was requesting. I asked if there was a bill that was due and he still did not answer, so I told him I would not provide the personal information he was requesting if he could not tell me why he needed it. The next agent who called informed me why they were calling and I gave them all the information they needed. After this, I began to get bills from them....

This company has been incorrectly billing me for charges that I do not owe. Apparently items were entered in the computer wrong, showing incorrect information that does. not match the eomb forms from my insurance company. Their employees will only go by what is entered into their computer and apparently can do nothing to have it corrected. Even though the error is on their end, all they do is refer you back to your insurance company...who indicate I owe Apria nothing. They have now Entered the charges with a collection agency and my insurance company is attempting to get them to correct their records,...

Apria HealthCare - Incorrect Billing

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 2 votes
The plan I was on at the time of service, which was simply picking up a nebulizer and asthma medication, my plan was a dual complete that included medicaid and medicare. There were supposed to be no copays for this and I was told it was one hundred percent covered. So about a month or two later, I get this bill for a leftover amount that didn't even say what it was for. It was not listed as a copay. It looked like they simply didn't bill my insurance properly and had a leftover total that they have been trying to stick me with. So I called them right away. Apria gave me a hard time. Wouldn't...

We received a home Nocturnal Pulse Oximeter and when I opened the paper work that came with it the forms have been copied so many times you can't read it. I called the number provided but it was not in service. I found out that it was a type-O on the form and they provided a wrong phone number. After getting the correct number I tried and tried to reach a person and was NEVER successful....

Apria HealthCare - invoicing errors and harrassment

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 3 votes
In mid-November I was contacted by Apria about what they claimed is an outstanding balance of $44.01 on my Apria Account # 0104CAR0X8. I called them back and told them I had already paid this by check directly out of my HSA and the agent said "oh, I see the payments. They weren't applied to the balance." So I told him to do so and he said that would satisfy the balance.

Less than 2 weeks later I received a notice from State Collections Service (SCSI) that I had a balance of $44.01 due against their account no. 25823058. I was of course infuriated that Apria would be so monumentally...

Apria HealthCare - North Carolina, Hickory - ordering supplies

This company is the hardest company to work with. Tried to order a replacement mask part for over 5 months and have had the run around, don't call us we'll call you and no one would call back. Insisted on credit card number to order the part; even though the part was 100% covered by insurance. When order arrived it was the whole face mask and not just the replacement part. My insurance only covers the whole mask every 6 months, the replacement part one a month. They knew what they were doing was wrong they want to be able to charge me for what my insurance does not cover. Watch out for...

Apria HealthCare - California - Customer Service Sucks Time & Energy

I've taken care of my father at home for the past 7 years and have had to deal with Apria on a dozen or so occasions. Each and every encounter has stolen hours of my life that I will never get back.

Apria refuses to coordinate medical equipment deliveries with the patients or families who will be receiving them. First, they slot you into a 4 hour delivery window which they invariably fail to inform you of. It's like a secret window that only they know about. So, the first delivery attempt, you're typically not home. Then it will take another day or two to reschedule...

Apria HealthCare - Florida - Billing

These people are crooks. Via their website, I arranged to have $100 deducted monthly towards a bill of $314, this was on Sept. 12. On September 18, I noticed that they had made an unauthorized withdrawal of $242 from my bank account utilizing the information I had given on their website. As far as I am concerned this is theft. I am on home oxygen 24/7 due to COPD and asthma, so I need oxygen, this is not some optional therapy. Every time I arrange to have monthly payments debited, some guy calls me to get payment, behaving as though he has no idea that payment arrangements have already been made....

Apria Healthcare sent me a bill for 20% BEFORE billing my insurance. When I called, they said that was my plan and I will owe that. I said my plan wasn't 80/20 but 90/10 and I had already reached my maximum out of pocket. They updated my plan to 90/10 and continue to now bill my for 10% even though they have yet to receive anything from my insurance. I have reached my maximum out of pocket and don't owe anything, and have confirmed that with them with my insurance on the phone. They continue to send me bills. Come to find out, they billed the wrong ID to my insurance. They still send me...

Apria HealthCare - Oregon, Salem - Apria = Poor Business Practice

Apria sent me a bill for a product when my medical coverage for that product expired. They did not give me any warning that I was going to be responsible for paying for it, they just sent me a bill. I wasn't even using the product anymore, but was waiting for someone to call me about picking it up when the coverage ended. I called just about everyone in the company and the buck kept getting passed until I ended up having a long argument with the local manager about it. She could see that I was not given a head's up, but would not budge on whose responsibility it was. So ridiculous. I told...

Apria HealthCare - Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh - Refused to supply equipment....and lied about it

Complaint Rating:  86 % with 7 votes
Two years ago, I broke my foot. Apria delivered some equipment, which was damaged. I called to get a replacement, and two years later am STILL waiting for a return call. Recently my CPAP machine broke. I called (twice) and never got a call back. I drove to the office, where they refused to provide me with a new machine, telling me my insurance company has 48 hours to decide whether or not to allow me to continue to breathe at night. I specifically requested a loaner, and was denied.

My insurance company states that Apria told them that they had offered a loaner, and I had refused....
