My question involves medical malpractice in the state of: CA
Hello, I was just curious if this is legal of my psychologist to do. He tested and diagnosed me for AD/HD a while back. Everything was paid for and running smoothly.
I few weeks ago my school requested verification of diagnosis ( a signature and a small paragraph explaining the diagnosis.) I asked him if this was something he could do for me, and he said of course. He wrote signed the paper work and wrote a few sentences about my ADHD. I just received a $340.00 bill from him out of the blue, and he wrote down the signature he did + the 3 sentences as "testing" and even tried billing my Insurance. I just received the invoice saying I owe $340.00 for this.
He never explained that he was charging me for any service... or rates.. or anything... He just billed me. Can someone explain to me if this is legal?
