Anyone ever get test results for a test you never had during a medical physical?

I just received med tests in the mail and there is one test I did not have, yet there is a list of results.

3. One time I got a call from a doc saying I had low potassium

A few months later, I had an appointment and looked at the chart. It was my name, but wrong birth date. Oops

6. My name is so unique it would be difficult to confuse it with another's

Altho one time I got a ticket in the mail that belonged to my niece. We're 30 years apart in age.

4. I had Type 2 Diabetes in my medical record for more than a year before a doc pointed it out to me

 

None of my blood test results have ever been consistent with that diagnosis, or even Pre-Diabetes.

HIPAA regulations provide a process for challenging inaccurate information in one's personal medical history and getting it corrected. The provider has 90 days to respond. Mine didn't, and on Day 92 I posted a negative review of the company on Yelp.

The following morning I had an email from an ombudsperson at the facility's corporate office. I called the phone number provided in the email, and my record was corrected within four hours.

Garbage goes in easily and gets spread around. Getting it cleaned up is not as easy as it should be.

5. are you certain you'd know if the test was performed?

It's hard to say without any further details, but I'd suggest you talk with your doctor about it. I mean, if it's an EKG and you know damned well they didn't attach any electrodes, that's one thing, but if it's blood work the additional labs might have been done with blood drawn for other tests. Or some other variant of you simply not knowing it was being performed?

7. It was a urinalysis result

Normally, they do request a urine sample during a yearly physical but this time they didn't which is interesting since I have issues with that.

8. I once received a hospital bill

for an emergency visit that charged for all kinds of services I didn't receive, including a CBP (complete blood panel). I went in because a bug flew into my ear canal. They dropped in some anesthesia, the bug jumped out, ran a few paces and dropped dead. The only supplies used was a tissue, and yet, the bill went on and on. I did not have insurance at the time. Luckily, I was friends with the CEO of the hospital and he got the bill straightened out in an instant. I probably would have been sued without his intervention.

10. About 20 years ago my Dad got a positive on a pregnancy test.

We needled him for years for that, after he showed us the results on the bill.

weeks later she got a note from a lab to call her doctor; that her pap findings were abnormal.
