Question: Is it considered discrimination if a surgeon charges self pay patients twice as much as insured patients?
Answer: A surgeon typically negotiates a deal with insurance providers and agrees to set a specific rate and comply with various other potential provisions in exchange for being named as an in-network provider. A self pay patient can negotiate a deal with his or her surgeon for the services he or she receives. If you feel that you have been charged an amount that appears unfair, you may want to consult with a consumer attorney to see if you can receive assistance on negotiating a bill.
