A woman got a bill from a medical testing lab she’s never heard of, for $35. Then, a follow-up bill said if she didn’t pay up right away, that price was going up — WAY up: to $1,287.

Which raises a question that comes up a LOT with medical billing: Can they freaking DO that?!?

Can some random lab hit you up for money — and then threaten you with a late fee of more than $1,000??

On this episode, we go find out.

This was fun. We'll do it again. Next time you want to know, Can They Freaking DO That?!? ... get in touch.

Also: We get into a whole story in this episode about "surprise billing" — and as we were publishing this episode, news was breaking. We've got an update at https://www.patreon.com/armandalegshow
