I've had two instances in the past year where I thought I was treated unfairly. One I was right about, and the other one I was wrong. Last December, my children's psychiatrist jacked-up his bill. I thought he was doing it because he thought my children weren't worth the work and he wanted us to go elsewhere. I was really upset and went crying to my therapist. A month later I was at the reception desk, scheduling another appt while someone else was checking out and paying their bill. I glanced at their invoice and noticed their charge was higher also.
That is one way you could find out what other people are being charged.

The other problem I had was with a church daycare.
They had a sign out saying they had openings. When I went inside to inquire, they said there weren't any openings. I had brought my son who doesn't have a hand inside. I then had my sister call the church daycare and act like she was a parent with a son the same age as my son. Over the phone, they told her they had openings. I was upset, but I felt I didn't have time to file a complaint or whatever. I also decided if they acted like that, I didn't want my son there.

For your peace of mind, I do think you have to find out if you are being charged a fair fee. If you aren't, then you want to find a more suitable therapist. If you are being charged the same fee as others, then you can stop worrying about it.
