I’ve been chasing down details that might explain the possible medical billing fraud. No that I know there’s a doctor affiliated with UF Health with a similar name to that Sound Physicians gave me, I went through my online medical records to see if he appears anywhere.
He does. Once. He ordered a magnesium blood screen. Five hundred bucks seems a little high for that, but maybe that’s it. But there’s another little issue.
While he ordered a magnesium screen, the lab did a full metabolic workup. As we scrolled (my retired RN sister was looking at this, too), another number jumped out.
Whoa. I’m diabetic? And no one at the hospital thought to mention that, or to prescribe anything?
My sister is diabetic, so she checked my blood sugar a few minutes ago.
Yep. I’m diabetic. And had no clue.
I’ll be going to a lab Monday to get another blood test to take to a doc.
I’ll have to make some diet changes. And no more evening nightcaps.
