Ok... so back in September when we ordered Avery's pump and CGMS with Minimed we knew that we would have to pay about $2500 out of pocket for everything... we have a lovely $2000 DME cap... so... we get our pump and get hooked up and never get a bill from Medtronic. I get an EOBfrom my insurance telling me that I owe $3,985.71... and get this... I don't owe it to Medtronic, I owe it to some 3rd party payor that Cigna Healthcare employes to "negotiate" prices with minimed! WTF?! Basically in a nutshell... Medtronic was pad $4,631 on 10/30 from this third party that cigna paid. In turn, they are billing me $3,985.71 - sounds to me like a scam and the lady at carecentrix (the 3rdparty) tells me in a not so nice way that there is nothing I can do about it! Watch me lady! I am so po'd right now..... I will fight this to the end especially when I signed and AOB with Medtronic NOT with this Carecentrix and the minimed people dealt with Cigna direct! Do ya'll think I have a legal case here or has anyone else been burned by the insurance companies?
