Opencare.com called me again. It's one of those websites that allows patients to make an appointment online.
I never signed up for their site or zocdoc or any other online appointment site, but Opencare keeps calling me as if I'm listed with them. Each time they call, they say that they have patients who want to know if I'm accepting out-of-pocket payers. They want me to call back and either tell them that I'm not accepting new patients or update my information.
Here's the message they left me.
Of course, this is bullshit. Why would someone contact this company when they can easily contact me to see if I'm accepting patients? Moreover, no one ever calls to see if a doc accepts self-pay. Prospective patients call to see if you accept assignment of benefits with their insurer. But Opencare, a company I never signed up with, always seems to have several patients asking if I'm accepting self-pay patients.
