Complaint Review: Summit Medical Group
Summit Medical Group1 Diamond Hill Road Berkeley Heights, New Jersey United States of America
Summit Medical Group fraudulent and deceptive billing practices Berkeley Heights, New Jersey
*UPDATE Employee: We would be happy to discuss your complaint
SMG violates its own practices and procedures by not discussing with patients their alternatives such as speaking with a financial counsel in the event there might be out of pocket expenditures or advising a patient as to the costs they could incur if billed on an out of network basis.
Furthermore, it is nearly impossible to get a representative at SMG to explain, in a consistent manner, their billing practices and procedures (ie when a service will be billed to your insurance company on an in network basis or an out of network basis), patient responsibility in an out of net work basis
My recommendation for anyone using SMG is to get in writing a concise description of your financial obligation (the amount) before anything is done.
