They’ll never find out until it’s too late……
The local (Citrus County) and state wide hospitals that are own by Governor Rick Scott (Florida) corporation HCA are now committing fraud when handling payments from patients. A treated individual is asked to furnish a payment of some sort for the services they are about to receive. If you give them your credit or debit card as the method of payment there is no mention nor written notice that you are agreeing in the eyes of HCA to have a recurring payment set up to automatically remove payments from your account (if debit card) or charge to your account (if credit card) on a monthly basis or whenever they deem a payment necessary! In other words, unauthorized future payments.
There is no easy recourse to stop this fraud other than turning over your old card to the institution where you got it and having a new card reissued, this requires a visit to the bank, in the case of a debit card, time consuming and inconvenient, with a credit card all the hierarchical red tape you have to go through explaining and obtaining another card. The best course of action, pay cash or get a money order, steps not easily taken when being treated in an emergency situation. Patient BEWARE.
