I sent the following email to attorney Steve Phillips of Pincus & Currier, LLP on September 17th, 2012. I attached a photocopy of the bill I received from Rxperts Pharmacy, which was postmarked September 13th, 2012.
I received a bill from Rxperts Pharmacy (attached) for $1320.28.
(1) It shows a line item entry for risperidone started on August 7th, which is the day I received a call from Woodland Terrace asking me to approve the administration of Risperdal. (I refused, but was ignored. See http://kathiegagne.com/2012/08/07/a-request-to-administer-risperdal/ )
(2) I don’t know if you want to send this to Dr. Wolf, but I thought I would send a copy as it lists several other medications.
(3) I have no idea why Rxperts Pharmacy is sending me this bill. At no point did I indicate to Woodland Terrace that I would ever personally be financially responsible for any of my mother’s bills; in fact I actually specifically refused to sign and / or return to Rosa Rivera the pages from the “admissions packet” related to billing. (See http://kathiegagne.com/2012/07/30/admission-pocket/ ) My question for you is: Should I respond to Rxperts Pharmacy at all? (A family friend told my sister to simply return any bills we are sent with “DECEASED” written on them.)
PS: We still have not received my mother’s ashes.
