My question involves malpractice in the state of: CA
Hello everyone, my question is about a medical bill. I had seen a specialist for cluster headaches and the doctor asked if I had a night guard and how old it is (for grinding teeth). She told me it was due to be replaced and she could get my medical insurance to pay for it so I agreed.
My next appointment she did the molds and I signed a paper agreeing to pay what my insurance doesn't.
I saw my dentist soon after and was told the night guard is fine and does not need replacing. I have since received a bill for the new one for $900 after insurance. I have yet to do the fitting appointment and pick up the new guard.
I feel upsold and misled, is that at all enough standing to back out of this? I have spoken to the doctor and she is not letting me out. I have never been in this position with a doctor before. What recourse do I have? Thank you
