Had a sleep test done in October 2017. Gibson Hospital charges over $2,000.00 more for this test than you could get one done in Champaign. They said I needed a CPAP. Hospital sent the order to a company in Champaign that is not in my insurance network. This happened in December. I tried to get them to send It to a company that is in my network. (They know my insurance company, why would they think It would be a good idea to go out of network, unless they get big kickback form out of network company? Doctor says it is the hospitals responsibility to send prescription to the in network company. Hospital says it's the Doctors responsibility. It is now after the first of the year and my insurance out of pocket expense starts over. This means another $1,600 for me. The hospital sleep clinic and billing were supost to call me back a couple of weeks ago and they have not. My conclusions are:
1. I don't really need the machine and Gibson Hospital is milking me and the insurance company.
2. I really do need it, and they don't care if I die.
3. No one at Gibson Hospital cares about anything but the money.
My final recommendation would be, if you are considering Gibson Hospital for anything, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. They DO NOT GET IT.
