My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Florida
My wife had a surgical procedure done as an outpatient recently. Post op a nurse/aid attended to her for about an hour or so before she was released. A few months later we received a bill for his services and he claimed our insurance carrier (which covered the entire procedure except his services) kicked his claim back. He never told her he was not affiliated with the hospital (a freelencer?) and, in any case, she was in no condition mentally right after surgery to accept or reject the services of what we now know was a private nurse that we would be obligated to pay out-of-pocket. He is looking to collect a fee for what we feel is an agreement never made. We believed, at the time, that he was on staff at the hospital. Please advise.
