Bennett Medical Supplies Nebulizer Billed with 600% markup!! las vegas Nevada
My daughter was in need of a Nebulizer per her pediatrician. We told them that we didn't need one because we had one from my son at home, and that the last time we got one we were charged $200.00 for it even though it is only worth $50.00 at most.
The nurse told me that you should have one for each child (for some crap reason) and that there is no way we would be billed for it. She reassured me that it was all covered by insurance and that if they charged us to simply return the machine.
What do you know, we just got a bill 4 months later for $200.25 for a nebulizer. The bill shows that it was normally a charge of $267.00, however the insurance told them to reduce it by $66.75 and the rest is to be applied to the deductable. The identical product is listed online for $34.25. That is a 780% markup!!
I called the billing company, Bennet Medical Services, to find out why the bill is so high. [continued below]....
Basically, Bennett Medical supplies finds it ok to rip off insurance companies to the tune of a 780% markup, and then the insurance only pays a normal amount, passes that bill along to the consumer. What a joke, give a product to doctors to pass along the their patients. Then send them a bill for $200.00 over what the product is worth and tell them that they will go to collections if they don't pay it.
