  • Been a Medical Biller for 10 years…as much as patient hate surprise bills and some providers abuse the system. Ultimately these Doctors are correct! ✔�� contracted rates for provider are sad and pathetic. If you don’t vote for universal health care these insurance co. will push YOU and DOCTORS into it slowly but surely. Cash pay Doctors….Cash pay!!!
