Coast Dental - Clearwater Misleading Billing Practices - They got caught in an audit and are now charging me for services they mis-billed the insurance over a year ago. Clearwater, Florida
*Author of original report: Do you work for them Batman
*Consumer Suggestion: Stay classy...
*Author of original report: Let them sue. They mislead me.
*Consumer Suggestion: No Rip-Off
Their reason: "You ins company had overpaid for treatment done in 2011 which gave your account a credit. For all appointments there after your co payments have been coming out of that credit. Your ins company has at this time been refunded the overpayment & at this time the balance is your responsibility."
My daughter is on the states healthy kids program and, as they (the state) and Coast has told me when we used them... All treatment must be pre authorized by her insurance before they perform work.
Coast obviously overbilled the insurance company and instead of returning the money to the insurance company, kept me coming back because my "daughter had a credit". Now that they have been caught and had to return the money, they are trying to rip me off because they were caught ripping off the insurance company.
Watch your wallets! If what they are doing isn't criminal, it should be.
I plan to call the department of health, the insurance company and file a complaint with the Fl. Dept of Financial Services and the State's Attorney office just in case it is criminal.
