I received a bill from the dentist for Mr. R. There was a note on the statement saying that they are working with our insurance to resolve any outstanding claims and if the insurance doesn't pay we will be responsible.
I took this to mean that I didn't have to pay the bill as the dentist office was still waiting on insurance.
Yesterday I cleaned out my purse and re-read the bill. After re-reading it, I thought maybe I was supposed to pay the $124 total that has a due date of today and the rest of the charges are what is pending. The statement does say amount due $124.20 due date 1/6/15. I've had them threaten to turn me in to collections before because I forgot to pay a $10 bill once so to be safe, I almost just went ahead and paid this online.
But I decided to call and ask since the wording on this bill is so confusing. And the dentist office told me NOT to pay it. Wow! I didn't expect them to tell me that. The person I talked to told me to just wait until all the insurance payments go through. Awesome!!!
