Orange County Medical Billing
I recently had an experience with OC Medical Billing regarding a medical visit to my primary care physician. A member of my family had been going to Surf City Pediatrics, located in HB, for months when my wife and I were hit with a $2,000+ bill and told our insurance, Cigna, was no longer valid or accepted. Fast forward 1+ year later ... Took me all of 45 minutes to find out that they submitted the wrong provider ID to the insurance Company. Rodney the owner has refused to call me back. Tracy, my billing "manager", hung up on me twice, refuse to help me and overall just won't take any responsibility for their error. On top of that they are not helpful and will not work my insurance provider to resolve this issue. Cigna has agreed to pay, in full, the medical bills directly related to this issue. All they needed to do was resubmit the bills and file a new claim. It's amazing that they can't even do that. Absolutely, the worst company to deal with. I'm surprised that a reliable and reputable Doctor's office like Surf City Pediatrics and Dr. Paul Pepek would choose OC Medical Billing for their medical billing needs. Such a shame because Dr. Pepek is a great doctor. I would stay away from OC Medical Billing at all costs!!!
Tips & Advices
Academic medical centers provide the widest range of specialty care treatments, including the latest technological advances, clinical trials, and surgical techniques. In general, an academic medical center is a better choice than a community hospital for complicated treatments or rare diseases. Pediatric intensive care, especially, is usually performed at academic medical centers.
Academic medical centers offer a broad range of specialized services, from allergists to urologists. Some of the larger medical centers have entire hospitals or clinics focused on a particular medical service, such as cancer treatment, though specialties vary among the centers. Patients whose community hospital or local doctors do not have the facilities or expertise to address complex medical conditions can be referred by their primary care physician or local specialist to a major medical center (there are more than a dozen in the United States).
Yes. In addition to their inpatient hospital services, medical centers can offer a wide variety of outpatient services, such as pain clinics, rehabilitation centers, surgery, imaging and laboratory, mental health treatment, and outpatient cancer treatment. Medical groups – doctors in private practice but affiliated with the medical center--will also have offices within the medical center.
Physicians, nurses, physician’s assistants, residents, and attending physicians makeup the clinical staff of an academic medical center.
Medical center accreditation is not required, but most centers work voluntarily toward accreditation because it represents higher standards of healthcare quality and patient safety.
