If you use a doctor that has offices in the medical buildings attached to Driscoll Children's Hospital you may be charged outrageous "facility fees" even though you never set foot in the hospital. These fees are over and above the charges for a normal doctor visit. You may also be charged inflated prices for x-rays and laboratory work. You will NOT be informed of this prior to the visit. This happened to me when I took my daughter to see Dr. Roger Timberlake of the Children's Orthopaedic Associates of South Texas. This was a regularly scheduled doctor's appointment. I had a referral from my insurance and he was listed as "in network" on my insurance company's provider list. When I registered, I paid my regular co-payment and thought I had met my obligation. A few weeks later, I received bills for all of the extra charges in the mail. There was NO disclosure about this whatsoever. We received no benefit for these extra fees. If your child needs medical care, be sure to ask your provider if they charge these ridiculous fees. If they do, go somewhere else!
