Complaint Review: Heuser Hearing Institute
Heuser Hearing Institute Billed for services they didn't tell me cost anything and which they have no signature or agreement to pay louisville, Kentucky
*Author of original report: Heuser Hearing Institute Billing Practices
*UPDATE Employee: Heuser Hearing Institute conforms to appropriate billing practices
*Consumer Comment: Don't
Two months ago they asked me to come in for testing and I did. Last week I received a bill for $131.00. When I called, I was told that I needed to pay for the hearing test they asked me to have because IVR wouldnt. I told them that I had no idea I needed to pay in the first place or I wouldnt have had the test. Since they had been cleaning my aids for free and they told me I needed to have the test (but made no mention of cost) it didn't occur to me that I would be billed. Furthermore, I wasnt informed of the fact up front or given a statement when I left. I was told I "should have known."
They also sent (by postal mail) a copy of a document that was signed in 2007 when I was referred by IVR that I signed at that time and again in 2010, however, the signature appears below the original and I think it may have been added. Regardless, I signed that original paperwork as a IVR client and that was the context in which it was presented to me.
The service dates on the bill are all for 03/11/2011 (and I wasn't billed until 05/06/2011). I never signed any documents to say I would pay for those services as I do at any other physician's office on the day of service. I do not feel I should have to pay for a bill because Heuser Hearing Institute assumed IVR would pay and when they found out otherwise, are attempting to manipulate and pressure me into paying for those services.
