My complaint is Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic Physical Therapy Office. I went there in March, 2017. I wanted to know the cost of physical therapy. I was told $30 to $80 would be my out of pocket cost after she contacted Anthem, my Insurance Co. I scheduled the appointments. After 11 appointments, I rec a bill in May for $3300!!! They sd incorrect & billed me $852. I was reassured that that was all I owed. Pd bill. Rec bill in Nov & Dec $569. Lied to about what owed. Can't resolve.
