Complaint / review text:
I am a member of UHC "choice plus" plan. For once, I decided to go with the gameplan and select a specialist from the network. It ended up costing me much, much more in out of pocket expenses to use the network UHC doctor than an out of network doctor. The reason? The network guy charged over $500 for an office visit!!! Of course this was discounted down, but when the bill came to me (I am still paying bc in the deductible phase) it was still $141.00. The honest out-of-network doctor that I should have used? He charges $85 for office visits, better credentials, doesn't take UHC but that only means that I would have to file the papers. What really makes my blood boil is that UHC perpetuates the high price of health care by letting their doctors bill $500 office visits. Sarasota Fl. The doctors name is Wazen.
