Doctors Office Already Wanting Payment??


I went in for an appointment at 8 weeks and they informed me that at my 12 week I have to pay 1/2 of the doctor delivery bill which is over 1k and the rest is due before I’m 28 weeks. Is this normal? I was just so surprised that they already wanted so much $ when I am only 12 weeks along. Im kind of bugged by this. I have the money for it but it just seems sooooo early to pay this much for a delivery that won’t happen for another 28 weeks!

I have already had a baby and my previous doctors office never asked or pushed for payment. I just got the bills once the baby was born.

Is this normal? I’m torn whether to switch offices because I do like my doctor!
