I’m asking this for a friend, who’s 7 year old daughter has an ongoing medical problem* that has not yet been diagnosed by her doctors. She’s been to at least three different doctors, no one can figure out what’s going on. Today, she went to a new doctor. They have insurance, but there are co-pays and percentages and it’s adding up quickly. She says this doc did nothing for her daughter, spent less than 10 minutes with them, and was a complete waste of money. Do they have any recourse in that situation?
*The kid has a heart murmur, kidney stones, seems to be sensitive to wheat and dairy, vomits a lot, and is frequently feverish, so if anyone has any suggestions about what’s going on there I’m sure she’d be thrilled to hear them.
