<![CDATA[Woman Billed for Covered Medical Treatment]]>Wed, 18 Oct 2017 10:57:39 -0500https://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/BAQUERO+URGENT+CARE+DEBT+COLLECTORS+PKG+-+00001929_WNBC_0000000.jpg

A trip to an urgent care medical facility is supposed to be a lot less expensive than an emergency room visit. But a Manhattan senior citizen found it costly when she was billed more than $1,000, even though she had insurance. 

When Beverly Ellis, a nurse who lives in East Harlem, went to vacation in Florida in July, she forgot to pack spare medicine and ran out of albuterol pump for her asthma. 

Worried oabout running out of her asthma medication, Ellis headed to a local urgent care facility, got a prescription, and submitted the claim to her health insurer.

About four months later, she received a bill for $1,000, and then for $1,031.

Ellis called her primary and supplemental health insurers, and they told her she should be covered. She couldn't figure out why she was being billed.

Then she grew worried when collection notices started coming in -- and that's when she contacted the Better Get Baquero consumer investigative team. 

"I don't have $1,000 to give unnecessarily, especially when I have adequate health insurance," she said.

BGB reached out to Memorial Pembroke Hospital, which ran the urgent care facility, to ask why Ellis was being billed. They directed BGB to the hospital's billing company, and without giving an explanation, stopped sending collection notices to Ellis. 

Ellis says she's grateful the issue has been resolved. 

So what's the difference in billing between urgent care centers and emergency rooms?

Emergency room visits are much more expensive, and take more time. According to Cigna, for example, the average ER visit costs more than $22,000. The average urgent care visit is just $176. And most procedures done at urgent care centers are covered by insurance. But people should always check with their own carriers.

<![CDATA[Ebay Collectibles Seller Gets Charged Twice for Same Refund]]>Tue, 17 Oct 2017 07:50:04 -0500https://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/BAQUERO+EBAY+PAYPAL+SALE+DOUBLE+DEBIT+PKG+-+00000921_WNBC_00000.jpg

A Bronx man had no trouble selling collectible movie figures on eBay, and he didn't take issue when the items were returned -- but when he got charged twice for the same refund, he decided to contact the Better Get Baquero consumer investigative team. 

Barry Feirstein and his son Jared both collect and sell collectible figures, and last November, he sold a set of seven Star Wars figures for $89.95. He shipped them to the buyer, wrapping each one in bubble wrap and then placing them in a box filled with styrofoam pellets.

"They were mint when they went out," said Feirstein.

But the buyer complained the items were damaged in transit, and shipped them back for a refund.

"I didn't have enough money in my PayPal account at the time, so eBay took it out of my Visa, my secondary payment method," said Fierstein.

He didn't mind that, but seven months later, in July, Fierstein got a note from PayPal telling him his account was debited to repay eBay. 

Fierstein asked eBay why the $89.95 refund was being processed twice. 

"I've gotten nowhere with eBay, and no matter how many emails I send -- and I can show you communications -- no matter how many voice messages I leave, it gets nowhere," he said. 

When BGB reached out to eBay on Fierstein's behalf, eBay acknowledged that a mistake was made on their end. They apologized to Fierstein and issued a refund of $89.95 -- and an additional credit for the same amount as a courtesy. eBay says instances like that are rare, and they always strive to do the right thing for their customers. 

As for the eBay money back guarantee, it usually doesn't cover items damaged during shipment. You can purchase insurance for the shipping, and in this case, the seller hadn't bought insurance but was willing to offer the refund. He just wasn't willing to be charged twice for the same refund.

<![CDATA[Man Keeps Getting Billed After Leased Car Is Returned]]>Fri, 13 Oct 2017 09:11:51 -0500https://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/BAQUERO+GM+LEASE+DEFAULT+PKG+-+00000000_WNBC_000000018206722.jpg

What do you do if you return a leased vehicle and you continue to get bills for that same car?

That's what Scott Webber of Manhattan faced when he turned in his Chevy Cruise LT after two years. 

"It was a great car, a very nice little car, quick," said Webber, who lives in Murray Hill. "It got me around town, and was very fuel efficient overall and handled nicely." 

When time was up, he called GM Financial, asking for a dealership that would accept a lease return on a weekend. He brought the car to that dealership in June. 

"He gave me a receipt showing the date of return, the mileage at the time of return and the overall condition, and I documented that I returned all the keys and whatnot to them," said Webber.

Webber thought he was all set. Then came the phone calls from GM Financial. 

"They had no clue where the car was when I spoke to them on the phone, and on top of that, they basically said I'm four months behind in making payments," he said. 

Webber said he was told he owed $329 and started getting letters demanding payment by mail. He started worrying about how it would affect his credit and his mortgage refinance -- so he turned to News 4's Better Get Baquero consumer investigative team. He wanted to know how the paperwork got lost and for GM Financial to correct the billing to show that he did in fact return the car.

BGB contacted GM Financial and asked if they had possession of Webber's car. Problem solved: after the calls, Webber confirmed he got a letter confirming his vehicle was accepted as a lease return in June and he now has a zero balance on the lease. 

GM urges that people follow this procedure for turning in a leased vehicle: if you're not getting a new car, schedule a free inspection and make an appointment to turn in the vehicle at the dealership where you got it. They have a toll-free phone number specifically for questions and information on lease returns.

<![CDATA[Selling Items Online? Don't Forget to Do This]]>Thu, 12 Oct 2017 12:20:54 -0500https://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/BAQUERO+PAYPAL+LUMIX+CAMERA+REFUND+PKG+-+00005023_WNBC_00000001.jpg

When you buy merchandise online, it's good to know you have buyer protection -- and the same goes for those who sell items online. 

That's what happened when an online marketplace transaction went wrong for Peter Jiardina, who's retired and spends time online selling used goods from his home in Succasunna, New Jersey. 

Over the last 20 years, Jiardina estimates he's sold about $20,000 worth of goods. 

"You know, I get busy cleaning out the basement, and every so often, I'll find an item that I think people might be interested in, so I'll put it up on eBay or Craigslist," he says. 

He recently sold a camera for $87, with conditions he's learned from experience: "The one thing is the no returns accepted, document everything, and make sure you have tracking numbers," he says. 

Despite those conditions he outlined, the buyer of the camera later requested a refund through PayPal, claiming the camera was defective. 

"He's saying that the manual says that in order for the flash to close, you gotta push it down and it clicks," said Jiardina. "And in reality, what you have to do with it is you push it down, you hold it down, and you push a little button to the right." 

PayPal ruled in the buyer's favor and returned the money. And Jiardina got his camera back in the mail -- but when he got the package and opened it, it was missing all the accessories Jiardina had sold the customer. 

Luckily, Jiardina had proof of what he'd sent: "I took pictures of what I shipped him versus what I received," he said.

This time, Jiardina reached out to PayPal to trying get back the $87 sale. And he reached out to Better Get Baquero, too.

The BGB consumer investigative team contacted PayPal on Jiardina's behalf, and soon after, Jiardina got his money back.

"I was happy that I got the $87.65, and I don't think it would have happened if it wasn't for your folks and your team, so I really appreciate it and thank you for that," he said. 

PayPal tells News 4's BGB that it "strives to ensure that customers have a seamless and positive experience." 

While their initial review of this situation was consistent with PayPal policy, it said the company worked to "rectify the situation for the customer." 

What are some seller protections? 

PayPal covers two types of problems: when buyers claim a transaction was unauthorized, and complain that an item wasn't received. PayPal protects the seller's account while it investigates the complaint, and there's no charge for that.
