I'm not familiar with how the bills are handled up front. Is the doctor not going to perform the procedure unless he's paid up front, or not allow your son to leave without paying? That is, if the doctor is going to send you the bill after the fact, I'd simply submit that bill to your carrier. They are required to pay it within 30 days. If the doctor wants payment before the surgery, ask for the bill now and submit it to your carrier.



Your carrier will pay 80% of the bill (unless you have a deductible that has not been met).



From what I recall, you have an attorney. Since you're paying your attorney a _lot_ of money, he/she should be handling this for you.

I can't see a doctor charging anything before the service is perormed and I can't see him not letting the patient leave without paying. If the doctor is going to bill you, just send the bill to your carrier for payment.



Again, I'd speak to your attorney about the best way to handle this.

The doc should simply file a lein....I'd be alittle worried about this docs business habits...can you have him call your medpay adjuster for verification of payment in advance of the procedure?

i do not understand how anyof this works. the attorney says i will have to pay for the surgery and the visits out of pocket and he will have 80% from my insurance refunded to me. the plastic surgeon in my opinion but thats is my opinion, should see my son thursaday take my 300 and give me a estimate and let that go to my insurance and let them pay him for fixing my son's face, and then let me pay the 20% left. well that is not what is happening. i have to pay up front do i need to find another surgeon? because i talked to several and none of them files on auto insurance

Plastic surgeons charge for consultations? I really don't now but I would have thought they would not charge for this. Your attorney can offer no insight on what is normal in your area?

My goodness!! Everyone, in that car are lucky they are still alive!! I'm sorry your son was seriously hurt, CONSERNED. Also..I read that the "car was on probation." I know PEOPLE can be on probation, but...a car?! How does that happen? Wow!! I have a feeling, because Daddy has money, THIS may be 'swept under the rug.' Just my opionion, of course. I live in a small town....I 'see' alot of this. However...I'm NOT saying this IS going on. Just reading this story, that's the impression I get. Hope things work out for you. CONSERNED, can you update me on the 'progress' of the case?

the driver of the car we thought was on probation, we found out the next day after the wreck he the driver of the car was on house arest. and i live in a small town and a lot of things get swept under the rug around here. this boy the driver should have been in prison or at the least jail a good while ago his record includes.. the first charge grand theft, VOP & dealing in stolen property, VOP & sex with a 13 year old girl, and of course now the attorney said VOP & DUI, leaving a scene of an accident with serious injurys, and did not report, driving with no licence, wreckless driving. as i have said before i don't want the boy to go to jail

Just going to let him continue on and do this to yet another person? Can't imagine why he just continues on this path. Perhaps next time he'll step it up a notch.



Sorry, but not only should you not be ignoring the problem, you should be pressing the issue. A nice letter to several key folks outside your town would probably help (State Attorney, Governor, etc).

Grand Theft

VOP

Dealing in stolen property

Sex with a 13 year old girl

DUI

Leaving the scene of a accident with serious injuries

Driving witout a license

Wreckless driving



I don't mean to sound harsh but...with this laundry list of offenses, his sorry ass should have been in jail a long time ago. And, sorry to say this but...if he was in jail, you wouldn't be going through all this.



Why...please tell me...WHY in the world do you not want this guy to go to jail?

Bet if it were your 13yr old daughter or next time he's out driving drunk hits your child/spouse/mom/sister and kills them or leaves them in a wheel chair or bed the rest of their lives...you'll be singing another tune....see this is one of the things that's wrong with the world....no one takes a stand....if someone before you had you wouldn't be in this shape...I think you are a decent person from what you have posted...but I would like for you think about something....in six months or a year from now if he kills a child driving drunk...or knocks up a 12 year old....aren't you going to feel just a tiny bit responsible that you didn't do what you could to get this loser off the street?

*shakes head*



conserned - go back and read your posts. Then sit down and think about all the money and time you have spent. Think about how much more time and money you will have to spend.



And..sorry to be blunt - think of the pain your son has gone though - and will go through...probably for quite a while.



You still want to keep the guy out of jail?



If it were me in your shoes, someone would have to keep me out of jail - no body hurts my family.

I'm all for giving EVERYONE and ANYONE a second chance...but this boy has had about ten it sounds like....time to suck it up and do what's right...tell you what...I'm with life I'm a mother grizzly when it comes to my family and my husband is the ultimate male protector...not a doubt in my mind that we would go to whatever lengths necessary to get some justice....wonder if you'd have felt different if you were visiting your son in a cemetary...only by the grace of God you're not...

WOW!! I understand this is ONLY a boy, however..............he knows the 'rules'. He should be held responsible for what he did. I DO have a question, though. Because this boy is a minor, when he turns 18..is this issue STILL on his record or is it just 'gone' because he was a minor at the time? It's not fair to 'sweep all of this under the rug.
