Yes if you are wondering, doctors do drive-bys.
If you haven’t heard about the so called practice of “drive-by doctoring,” you might want to know what is really going on in the medical billing landscape. Especially as in this video, whereby a patient got a surprise $117,000 medical bill from a doctor he didn’t even know.
First of all, “drive-by doctoring,” is the practice where physicians and other medical professionals assist the primary physician assigned to a case and then charge exorbitant fees for their participation. When the provider is outside the patient’s network, those fees can get passed on either to insurers or to the patients themselves.
