Hello,

A patient had a scheduled surgery. Before the surgery the patients blood pressure was checked. The patients blood pressure was elevated and the Dr. cancelled the procedure. Can the Hospital bill for this service?
The patient had a consent for the surgery by the primary doctor.

Thanks:cool:
