Urine Test
Amount: $11,143.00
Posted by: Julez in Fort Smith, AR.Posted: March 4th, 2016 01:03PM
Type of Test: Drug ScreenBrand/Laboratory: Southwest
Had a couple surgeries and the doctor just wanted to confirm that the prescriptions were not being abused?!?! I understand this might be protocol. However, I had not asked him for any pain meds in more than a month. I have a high pain tolerance. Southwest is a rip off! Thank God my doctors office sees this as a rip off like me. They are going to do what they can to fix it.

Over priced Urine test

Type of Test: Full Panel Urine TestBrand/Laboratory: Sun Clinical Laboratory
Live in Tx, needed urine test for migraine medicine as it is a scheduled drug. Was not given information on what lab my sample was sent to and the Dr. sent to an out of network lab. My insurance will pay for about 1400.00, but the lab charged me over $6000 and expect me to pay the balance. After I called them they sent a form for me to sign saying I understand the lab might be out of network and that I understand I will be responsible for costs not covered. I obviously did not sign, am trying to get comparative costs...Crazy

Type of Test: urineBrand/Laboratory: American Forensic Toxicology
I went to my in network pain management doctor who wanted to do a urine test on me. The doctor's office, for dome inexplicable reason sent it to an out of network lab. If that wasn't bad enough, he went high tech and ordered 16 drugs to be tested for. Many of them antidepressants that I have never been prescribed nor taken. I belive this should be investigated. These guys will steal you blind and leave you in more pain than you came to them in.

Cost of doctor mandated drug test for narcotic prescription
Amount: $687.00

Type of Test: Urine drug panelBrand/Laboratory: Quest Diagnostics
My doctor required me to take a drug test the last time I went in for my ADHD prescription, which seemed reasonably given the level of abuse with such drugs. What was not reasonable, however, was the cost. My doctor charged me $140 for collecting my urine, which at that cost I assumed was the total cost of the test. Then, much to my surprise, last week, I get a bill from Quest for $687. $687, yes, you read that correctly. It is nothing more than extortion and exploitation. I did not consent to paying that nor was I even informed my test would sent out and wasn't being tested in house.

Type of Test: urine testing for 29 drugsBrand/Laboratory: SMA Medical Inc.
My Dr Who's in network sent a urine sample to an out of network laboratory. BCBS will pay zero. 29 individual lab tests ranging from $25.00 to $750.00 each. The good news is that I have a clean bill of health and negative results. The bad news is I owe $5,295.00 for unnecessary tests.

Drug Testing on teen
Amount: $700.00
Posted by: V Petersen in Dallas, TX.Posted: August 11th, 2015 02:08PM
Type of Test: UrineBrand/Laboratory: Quest Diagnostics
This test was done in our Dr.'s office and sent through their lab. Our Ins. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas Paid $Zero.... They classified it as "Mental Health (which we dont have coverage for), and they discounted it ZERO. We had no earthly idea that this test was so outrageously high. When we called Quest they said that's the cost...When we asked what BCBSTX pays they refused to answer. When we asked what the average cost Out of Pocket or Cash pay client pays they would not tell us. My husband has had CT Brain Scans with contrast that cost less than this simple urine test for drugs. I will NEVER... EVER use this lab. I will ask prior to ANY Testing Who is the Processor/company is at that Dr's office...If it is Quest...that test is getting done somewhere else and only after I get competitive pricing confirmation first. Our nation is collapsing under the weight of these absolutely unbelievable medical testing and health costs. I am willing to pay for services, this is crazy.

My isn covers all my visits and everything else! But does it really cost 80 each visit for a saliva test? Somehow I think that's odd when ins covered everything else!

Type of Test: Test for drugsBrand/Laboratory: Confimatrix
Dr. Office wanted urine for drug tests never saying anything about cost. Is this a mistake? Seems like this can't be right insurance already paid some of it and I am left with balance of $1,460.00. Wasn't told what lab they would be using and left me the impression that they would test at each visit.
