I just got my medicare summary notice. I had gone to see a Doctor who is on the cfids honor roll (and I've done more research than he has). It cost me $250 up front (wish I'd given the money to a food pantry). Today when I recieved my notice from medicare under the notes section it states:" Your doctor did not accept assignment for this service. Under federal law, your doctor cannot charge more that $197.73. If you have already paid more than this amount, you are entitled to a refund from the provider." This is a first for me anyone else seen it? I'm calling my congressmans office on monday to check it out.
