BAMC doctors saved their lives. Now BAMC bills threaten their livelihood.
After being discharged, Faris received a bill that, according to his family, has swelled well into the six figures. Since Faris is not active duty military, a retiree or a covered family member, he is responsible for the full health care bill, according to BAMC billing policy. The claims adjuster handling Rocha's bill has been unable to get BAMC to provide an itemized bill. The KSAT 12 Defenders reached out to officials with BAMC regarding Faris and Rochas billing issues. This clears the way for Rochas medical bill to be paid.
