I recently scheduled an appointment for a treatment plan (gum graft) that covered only some of the teeth I needed work on. The reason I opted to have only some teeth worked on is that insurance covers the cost up to a certain amount per year. On the day of the appointment, I checked in and paid the exact amount that I agreed to for the limited treatment plan before going in to see the doctor. Two days later, I receive a call from the office telling me that my doctor in fact had done all my teeth and that I was due to pay $1500 upon my follow-up visit. I did suspect during the operation that the doctor was doing more than asked, but it would have been too late to ask and I was being operated on so that was the least of my concerns. I have not met with them yet to discuss the issue, but I believe they are clearly at fault for not communicating with the doctor that I did not sign up nor pay for the full treatment plan.
Am I liable at all for paying the medical bill they are now asking me to pay?
