  1. Okay, the story is like this: One and a half year ago, in March 2017, I had an acute stomachache at mid night so a taxi was called to transport me to the nearest hospital, which was St. Elisabethen Krankenhaus in Frankfurt am Main. There they gave me an abdominal ultrasound scan and a shot of pain killer. Then they told me that I should change to another hospital to get better treatment and the ambulance for that arrived at dawn. My stay at the second hospital was covered entirely by my insurance (Mawista) so all was good.   Until now: This week, a letter arrived at my mail box form Allianz. They say that they do not have a contract with this St. Elisabethen hospital  so I must pay the bill myself. I was more than surprised: Almost 1700 Euro for a stay that lasted a few hours, with the only treatments being painkiller and ultrasound scan. And another problem is, the attached bill stated that it expired in April 2017, but the sending date on the letter from Allianz was October 1st 2018, and it only arrived this week.   There are two things that are unclear to me: -This bill feels totally unreal. It feels almost like extortion if you ask me. The most expensive thing in the bill is: DRG-Ziffer G67C (1600 Euros). Is this kind of price normal in Germany? -Will I face some problem with the police since this bill expired so long ago?   And this is not the first time a bill from Allianz like this arrived either. A year ago they asked for the transportation fee of the ambulance, and I already paid that. 400 Euros for a 15 minutes trip    Thank you for reading this until the end. I hope that I will receive an answer soon. I am lost, I do not know what I should do. 1700 is too much for a student.
  2. Phone bill apparently not canceled

    Hi all.   So I signed up for a new iPhone seven with a contract through O2 in August 2017.   before I did this I made it very clear I will leave Germany early 2018 and was told there will be no cancellation fee. I would just have to give 3 months notice, pay those 3 months and also how much is left on the value of the phone.   janurary 2018 comes around and I go to an O2 store, fill out the cancellation paper work and provide them with my deregistration certificate and they faxed it off to their headquarters.   in February 2018 O2 they withdrew around €600 plus euros from my account which was the value of the phone remaining (fair enough) so they obviously received my documents to cancel the contract.   I left at the end of March 2018 and will not be returning to Germany.   I now have Telefonica harassing me over email saying I owe them money for the monthly phone payment, data usage and insurance! I also canceled the insurance and have email proof of what I sent to them!    They are refusing to accept I canceled it! They are asking for proof but ofcourse since O2 faxed the documents to the headquarters I don’t have any... but obviously they received it because they charged me for the phone value of €600+!!   they now passed the bill onto a debt collector and on top of the phone contract they’re trying to charge me an early contract cancellation fee of €300 LOL!! Which I was told countless times I would never receive one!   can they really do anything since I plan to never return to Germany?? I am not paying them a damn cent! I won’t be responsible for their employees who don’t do their job properly. I provided them every document the O2 store asked for to cancel this contract.
