LabCorp / Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings / bills

Dallas, Tex- Are all doctors used to do all of his own in-house laboratory work. The cost was covered under our deductible. Then he switched over to LabCorp of America. Once he did that we started getting secondary bills directly from LabCorp. These bills ranged anywhere from $175 up to 250.00- depending upon the type of work you had done. We just paid it. But it true the cost for healthcare up by a couple thousand dollars every year just because LabCorp bills.

Two years ago, we switched doctors. Once again the doctor did all of her bloodwork and laboratory stuff in house. It was covered by the cost or deductible. In August of 2018, Our doctor switched over to LabCorp. We came in and December 2018 for a routine and end of year physicals. That's when we discovered the change to LabCorp. We were very upset. We knew the bills will start coming for our laboratory work. We expressed this concern for Dr staff. That's when a LabCorp, Senior account executive, Katherine Haake, came in to the medical treatment area bother having blood drawn. This is a clear violation of the federal privacy act. She is not a medical staff. She wasn't supposed to be there. She handed us a business card of hers and says, "if you have any problems give me a call"- we just left because we knew this was a joke. Lab court treat people like ATMs . Like clockwork, we are now getting secondary bills for blood work and laboratory work from Lab Corps of America. So far we have about $100 worth of medical bills on our kitchen table. We are expecting more by the beginning of the new year. We wrote a letter to her doctor, explaining we do not want LabCorp involved in our healthcare. We called LabCorp tonight, and made it especially clear that we do not want them involved in our healthcare. They have far too many complaints. The accounting and billing practices are shady at best. If they were restaurant we wouldn't eat with them. With this many complaints we definitely don't want them involved in our healthcare. We're waiting for a response from her doctor. It may mean we have to find a new doctor. LabCorp has a chokehold on all of North East Texas. They have monopolized all of the laboratory work here. So I'm not sure what will happen. they have far too many complaints. The accounting and billing practices are shady at best. If they were restaurant we wouldn't eat with them.
