I had a ache in my back and these tests were ordered. I thought it was kidney or gall bladder pain. As it turned out I had a UTI. and a huge bill. Dr. Lynn Pittman ordered all these. First visit. Also ordered Lovaza script. Cost almost $200. I have a $4,000 Deductible private policy and am already retired. Hospital wants paid in 2 yrs. completely.

Overcharged on tests
Amount: $974.00
Posted by: B. Johnson in Tampa, FL.Posted: September 9th, 2013 05:09PM
Medical Center: Quest LabsType of Blood Test: Hepatitis, ANA, others
Cost for hepatitis test alone was $463. I told dr I did not need that test, but she insisted. I was right. I sure don't need that bill. Other tests ranged from $40 for hemogram to $60 for metabolic panel and $80-$$132 each for various ANA and IF tests. Aetna would not pay (or apparently negotiate price with lab), so we carry it all. Might be worth it to try self pay.

blood test
Amount: $2,589.00

Medical Center: Edward Health Center ILType of Blood Test:
I had different symptoms and my doctor suggested blood tests checking for thyroid problems. Well, the tests they did seem comprehensive, and it turned out I have hypothyroidism, anemia, and Sjogren's disease. I asked at the time how much a blood work up would cost since I have not had an employer that offers insurance in many years and I was told that they would send a bill. Boy did they send a bill, $2589.00 and it is due in 2 weeks? Seriously? Best health care in the world, huh? I cannot wait for changes to come to this ridiculous system! I don't need free health care, I just need reasonable prices, and the ability to shop around, or at least to know what I am going to be charged ahead of time so I can decide if I can afford it. I absolutely hate this. I don't want to hear from anyone about buying insurance on my own, because in my state insurance for my family would be over $2000.00/month, would only cover 80% in-network and would not cover lab tests anyway.

It's outrageuos. I called billing to complain over 24 hours ago but have had no call back as of yet. I'm going to at least share my opinion with a supervisor.

Medical Center: WMHType of Blood Test: Standard/New Doctor
I have a new Doctor who had me get blood work done as a new patient. When I received the insurance statement, I almost fell out of my chair. The insurance picked up $400.00 of it, but I still have to cough up $276.00. If I had known my blood was that valuable, I would have had a tap installed and sold it years ago.

Medical Center: Hancock RegionalType of Blood Test: Thyroid and CBC
I have this test every year. Two years ago I paid just under $300 at Mid Americal Clinical Labs. Last year we got a discount (thanks to Obamacare) and I paid about $78. This year I am working in Greenfield, just east of Indianapolis and went to Hancock Regional on some bad advice from a coworker. It was $737 before the insurance discount. Same test. Every year.

I was told to get blood test to see if I was a cystic fibrosis carrier since my wife is pregnant. I had cholesterol, etc looked at since it had been a while since I had done that. Then WHAM! $1489 bill came. Cystic fibrosis test was $995 alone. What a crock! Not paying it. Others have been charged as little as $100 for that test.

Tested lipids, thyroid, hormones and vitamin deficiency. My doctor is covered by my insurance but I was surprised to discover the doctor uses a lab that is not. Always ask what lab they use and check with your insurance prior to scheduling an appointment !

I was shocked to see the hospital charged $828 for a routine blood test. I'm 55 and healthy. Per my annual physical, the doctor ordered a standard blood test. After insurance and discount, I still owe $308! How do I complain? Shouldn't they post their prices to enable me to shop around?
