My complaint is with the ER Physician and Anesthesiologist whose services I was provided by Los Alamos Medical Center for a broken foot and arm, as well as the hospital itself. I went to my only local hospital which is clearly contracted with my insurance company, but just got stuck with a bill from the ER doctor and anesthesiologist who are not contracted and refuse to accept only the usual, customary and reasonable rate that my insurance pays to out-of-network providers. Instead, they greedily took my insurance company's payment and additionally are balance billing me for the rest of their exorbitant rates. And, what's really ridiculous is that the ER doctor basically did very little for me and called in an orthopedic surgeon who took care of me (and who, thankfully is contracted with my insurance). Now, when all the insurance payments and adjustments shook out, the ER doctor basically expects to receive more than the orthopedic surgeon accepted (and he did the work). That's ludicrous. Hospitals should consider themselves gatekeepers, such that if the ER facility is contracted with your insurance, then any provider which THEY present to you should be, as well. It is very misleading and obviously ER patients are under physical DURESS when they sign paperwork upon arrival. There is a reason why legislature against such balance billing had been introduced in multiple states - because it is SHOCKING and WRONG. Shame on Los Alamos Medical Center, not to mention the unscrupulous uncaring ER providers who are making more money DIRECTLY out of the pockets of unfortunate people facing a crisis. What on earth do I have insurance for if it can't cover me in an emergency? This is crazy and scary. Please change the laws in New Mexico to limit such uncontracted providers to accept the usual, customary and reasonable rates that insurance companies will and do pay and prohibit balance billing.

i was in labor for 9 days and they had me keep going into birth center to check me and baby out. the 3 times i went in, the private bathrooms in the delivery room were dirty, there was hair everywhere and they told my mom that they would be right back cuz they had to grab my monitor straps from a few nights before (unsanitary, unacceptable). needless to say my mom and i were so digusted that i choice to have my son in espanola hospital (both boys were born there and the nurses and docs are amazing, the rooms and hospital is clean, friendly staff altogether). even los alamos ER docs are ridiculous, rude, impatient, i had to leave and go to espanola. i will never go back to los alamos medical ccenter or any of the doctors in los alamos, except DR. Tom(pediatrics).
