CityMD Reviews (46)
In a month or so I received a bill - $262.26!
Found out that they submitted a claim to my insurance in the amount of $300.00!
For 10 minutes water sprinkling they got paid $37.74 and want $262.62 more.
Hope somebody from citymd management will contact me ([email protected]) with explanation, also evaluate professional level at citymd on New Dorp location in Staten Island.
Update - after posting review on this site (also on pissedconsumer.com/), plus emails sent to City MD, I received a two phone calls from billing department (as a result of request from Citi MD Legal department).People I spoke with asked for more details on original visit and forwarded report to Medical Directors to review.
will keep you posted
Is this a bad joke?
Pcr results should be available in several hours.
I understand they are trying to make money
But are we not trying to save lives?
This is unacceptable!
Had same experience with my son who went there without telling me..
Pcr takes several hours not several days
this is not helping stop the spread of the disease
Revdex.com: I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID# [redacted] , and have determined that my complaint has NOT been resolved because: [It contains untruthful statements by CityMD, namely:"we are reducing your bill to $125...THIS IS THE AMOUNT WE HAD PREVIOUSLY COMMUNICATED WHEN YOU CONTACTED CITYMD PRIOR TO EXAMINATION." That amount was never mentioned and, arguendo, if a cash price was quoted, why did CityMD still send a bill to the insurance company? Furthermore, why did they almost triple the price they claim they quoted to me when they sent that bill to the insurance company? Were they lying to me or the insurance company? IN the four communications I sent to them requesting an itemized bill why did they NEVER send that supposed quote and keep insisting on the $amount as the original cost (minus a $discount)?CityMD wrote in the same communication, "Because CityMD does not provide wellness exams for $or $75, AND WE DID NOT FIND RECORD OF THIS QUOTE..." If CityMD has record of providing me with quotes then they can provide us with the record of the quote for $which they claim to have provided me prior to the examination They should rush forward with that information to resolve the matter"In reviewing phone call correspondence" Great, another claim to have record of phone calls So where are the records of me being told that the cash price was $125? That could have settled this back in March when I first started inquiringIn reviewing phone call correspondence...we acknowledge that your intent may have been to not process this claim through your insurance carrier." Now they are claiming that according to phonecalls they realize that my intent was to pay cash I wrote four times since the initial visit (see attached letters and website requests) Each time I repeatedly made this statement and now months later they realize what my I had repeatedly told them verbally and in writing BUT they still want to hold me to the higher cash price which they claim to have quoted me BUT they claim in the same communication that they didn't know I wanted to pay cashThis organization is showing itself to be much worse than I originally guessed I cannot pay the amount they suggest or $now that they have written that they have phone call records of this quote until I get that phone call record ] In order for the Revdex.com to appropriately process your response, you MUST answer the question above Sincerely, [redacted]
Thank you for raising the concerns voiced by the above patient We deeply regret the unfortunate experience that resulted in this outreach In response to the patient’s complaint, we have performed an internal investigation and wanted to share our findings with you.The site staff collected the urgent care copayment of $from the patient The patient asked what might the full billed amount based on his deductible be, which our front desk staff members do not have access to because not all charges are completed by the end of the visit and because other providers’ claims may process before the CityMD claim which would alter his deductible portion The patient states that the front desk staff member informed him that he will only be responsible for the $and not the remaining balance When the patient received a statement for the remainder of the bill reflecting his deductible, he contacted both our customer service department and the site to dispute the charge.After review, we identified that the site staff were correct to obtain copayment only and that they would have been unable to provide a more thorough patient responsibility at the time of service They appropriately advised the patient of his future due balance without specifying dollar amountWe will extend a one-time courtesy to this patient and not hold him responsible for the remainder of the bill beyond the $copayment.We have reiterated to the site staff and customer service staff our expectations in terms of patient service.The patient has no balance on his account and will not be responsible for any additional charges related to this date of service

Revdex.com: I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID# [redacted] , and have determined that my complaint has NOT been resolved because: [I am glad to hear that the business has an electronic copy of the message That seems like it would solve the matter immediately so I'm not sure why they are only offering this now in June rather than in March when I first contacted them about this issue I'm also not sure why, when they asked to arrange a phone call for yesterday, they didn't mention that they are now willing to play the recording for me Instead they emailed to say that they were "hoping we could speak further about it".Nonetheless I am happy to listen to the recording in which I am told the amount billed for my exam will be $300, or $230, or $125, or $ Since the business is now happy to share the recording with me they can send me a copy of the electronic recording In fact, I have no problem with them sending it via the Revdex.com since it's just an unedited recording of CityMD telling me that my charge for the Wellness exam is $300, or $230, or $125, or $ Since CityMD has nothing to hide they won't mind sharing the file so I can listen again and again to the price being $300, or $230, or $125, or $75.Inform them they should send it immediately so I can list to the amount and write my check for the amount I apparently agreed to pay and put this behind me I'm very excited to hear this.Thank you, ] In order for the Revdex.com to appropriately process your response, you MUST answer the question above Sincerely, [redacted]

At CityMD we continually strive to provide the highest level of clinical care and exceed all expectations that our patients may have in every aspect of their experience with us The issue brought to light in the patient's complaint is an unfortunate byproduct between our billing system and the patient’s insurance companyWe have been working to remedy this situation with various insurance companies and to ensure that all future patients avoid a similar outcomeSpecifically, in the past, billing for [redacted] ***s was an issue when a patient had not met his/her annual deductibleThis would arise only with certain insurance companiesBased on our newly modified billing structure, patients will only be billed for the [redacted] when that is the primary reason for their visit
This has been addressed with the patientPatient is aware and the adjustments to the bill has been made

Tried paying online with Apple device and after entering all the data, message said they did not support Safari. Used Edge and it came back with the same message. Used Explorer and the message said we only support Safari! So, I called and paid over the phone. After payment was processed, the rep noticed that the account was already paid. Was told refunds are handled by another dept and was transferred to them. There is apparently only one person that can handle refunds and he was out. Was told I would get a call the next day with the refund confirmation number. Three days later, I called again and was told the one person was still out! This is truly unacceptable. I would NEVER go to CityMd again. There is NO customer service. Even if I had received good care (the dr never examined me and I received a bill for $262.26), I would never go back based on the lack of caring across the board.
