I received a bill from Universal Fidelity Collection Agency for $4022 on 7/21/12. Fidelity is trying to collect for Aureon Lab services on 7/23/10, 7/23/10, and 9/27/10 just prior to and after to my Prostatectomy for Prostate Cancer on 9/1/10. Aureon labs went out of business on 10/12/11. I called my Medical Clinic and they indicated that no claims from Aureon had been submitted through them to Medicare, my primary health insurance provider. I then called Medicare and they indicated that Aueron had not submitted any claims to them. Medicare indicated that any claim has to be submitted one year from the date of service for it to be considered for Medicare for payment. Medicare also indicated that I would only be responsible 20% of the $4022 that Medicare wouldn’t have paid. My supplimental Health Insurance is Tricare for life. I assume that they would have picked up the additional 20% cost.
Do I have to pay any amount of the Fidelity Collection Agency $4022 Bill?
