We took my daughter to the emergency room last fall to an in-network provider and met our deductible. However, I received a bill from the doctors group that treated my daughter and apparently they are out-of-network. I don't understand how I can be expected to pay that bill after I met my deductible and nowhere was I told that the doctors that worked at the in-network hospital were out of network (unless it was some short disclaimer I was given as my daughter struggled to breathe). And even had I known, what options would I have other than to take my daughter to the EMERGENCY ROOM of an IN-NETWORK HOSPITAL, if the doctors there don't fall under our plan?! I suppose my question is do I really have to pay out of pocket for this bill AFTER I MET MY HIGH DEDUCTIBLE even though it was at an in-network emergency room? It's not like it was an experimental procedure they were trying. They simply gave her some breathing treatments and IVs.
