HIPAA Authorization for DCF
July 29th, 2013 @ 11:21 am

  From: Katie Perez @ K.B. Mathis, P.A. To: David V. Gagne Sent: July 29, 2013 @ 10:57 AM PDT Mr. Gagne: Based on our conversation today, I would like to try to get records from DCF. It is a long shot since they are not a medical provider, but I would like to try. […]

Medical Authorizations Delivered
July 8th, 2013 @ 10:45 am

This morning I printed the two HIPAA release documents that Katie Perez emailed me last week. I signed them and had them notarized at the UPS Store down the street, then faxed copies to the law offices of Mathis & Murphy, P.A. and mailed them the originals. I then emailed Katherine the following:   Sent: […]

Medical Records Received!
May 31st, 2013 @ 1:55 pm

Almost exactly nine months after I started trying to get them, I finally have copies of mom’s medical records from the thirty-seven days she spent at Woodland Terrace. Just before two o’clock in the afternoon on May 31st, 2013, I started downloading eight emails from Kelly Mathis of Mathis & Murphy, P.A. Each message contained […]

Halifax Pathology Associates, PA
November 9th, 2012 @ 8:29 am

Mom had an outstanding balance of $1,375.02 with Halifax Pathology Associates, PA, the company that handles — as far as I can tell — the billing for blood analysis (and nothing else) done at Halifax Hospital. That total covers six tests done on January 20th, five tests done on January 21st, three tests done on […]

Ford Motor Credit Company, LLC
November 5th, 2012 @ 10:24 am

I’m not 100% certain of all the details surrounding the story, but I know mom basically stopped making car payments on her Ford and they repossessed it. I am pretty sure — if I remember correctly — that I am the one that insisted she stop making payments on it, because she simply didn’t have […]

Radiology Associates
November 1st, 2012 @ 9:49 am

I found a bill for mom from a place called Radiology Associates. The statement shows it was for something labeled MRI BRAIN WO/W CONTRAST administered at HMC (which I correctly assumed to be Halifax Medical Center) on January 20th, 2012. The amount due is $275.00 and it was supposed to have been paid by 02/25/2012. […]

Florida Hospital DeLand
October 30th, 2012 @ 11:21 am

I found a bill from Florida Hospital DeLand among the stacks of paperwork my sister pulled from mom’s desk. The bill is for $2,169.84 for her visit there on December 1st, 2011. That was the true “beginning of the end” for mom; it hurts to even see that date. I called the number on the […]

J.C. Christensen and Associates, Inc.
October 26th, 2012 @ 9:58 am

I found a “Notice of Collection and Special Offer” from J.C. Christensen and Associates, Inc. for $1170.23, addressed to mom and dated February 8, 2012. It notes that their client is Cavalry Portfolio Services and that Cavalry contracted J.C. Christensen and Associates, Inc. with regard to a delinquent HSBC Bank Nevada N.A. \ Orchard Bank […]

AR Resources, Inc.
October 25th, 2012 @ 1:13 pm

I just called AR Resources, Inc. of Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. I found a bill from them to mom dated January 25, 2012 for $790.00 for “EMRGNCY MEDICINE PROFES”. They’re a collection agency and the bill notes that their client is EMRGNCY MEDICINE PROFESSIONALS, DELAND. There’s nothing on the bill to indicate the date of the […]
