In April I was referred to an ENT for a consultation. When I called their office I was quoted a price of $125 for a consultation as a cash patient as I do not have insurance which I paid at the time of service. I just received a bill from Henry Ford Allegiance for another $75 with the explanation that the quoted price doesn't reflect all of the charges. There were no other tests or x-rays taken at my appointment. The doctor spent all of 15 minutes with me and did nothing more than look in my mouth. I can't believe that this is legitimate.
You should look at all of the paperwork you were given first to see if they have the latitude to charge you a price different than what was quoted. You should also double check to see if they actually provided more services than what the original quote was for. Sometimes even small things can result in additional charges.
