Last January, I was very sick from a common cold that I could barely drive myself to Hospital.
I somehow pulled myself to the Hospital gates and had a checkup with the Physician there. They check me, and prescribed me drugs for cure. This was my first time visit to any hospital in US and I didn't know much about all the rules and regulations. After getting my prescriptions I was asked to get those drugs and consume them as required.
Straight out from Hospital I went to Drug store after a good drive nearby my house. When I reached the Drug store I asked for the medicines, to which the Pharmacist denied me medicines on the pretext that my Prescriptions were neither signed nor had the physicians license number.
I didn't have the strength to drive back some mile to hospital and thus had to get myself cured by some alternative means, which does not involve anything from that Hospital service.
In US, it is not legal to have drug without proper Prescription from a Physician.
Almost 10/11 months from that incident till now, I have been chased by my Hospital to pay bills for a service that I didn't get. I chased my insurance company for help, but even they denied stating that I received a service just by talking to a Doctor.
What options to I have in my disposal to take action against the Hospital and get myself hooked out from the Hospital bill?
