Pills and visit costs!??? Help please!?

Hey everyone I need some help here please. My lady friend was on the birth control pills and wasn't really sure about the pricing. Long story short about 6 months later she receives a bill in the mail for $2000+!?! Dollars!? Is this type of stuff unheard of!? That's crazy pricing. She only did two doctor visits at a clinic. They told her it's free and what not. But months later a major bill of 2000 dollars! Help please and any advice? Maybe like government aid programs or something. She doesn't have insurance. Is this type of price legit for two visits???

Hi Alex,

We could use a bit more info - like, what country / state / town are you and your friend from?

Personally I cannot see how someone could be charged 6 months later like that for the pill, nor how the contraceptive pill or doctor consults for the pill could have cost that much money, but then if you are in USA, your medical system is insane, so I guess it's possible.

Tell her to go see the doctor again to verify it is real, and if so, go see a pro-bono lawyer.

She should contact the people that billed her. It is not possible for us to say what is normal and not normal, because we do not know anything about her case.

Thank you for your both of your replys I appreciate it! And yes it's in the United States in California. She's gonna go to clinic and talk to them about it. But I guess that's all that can happen. System never fails. Crazy.
