My blood work was sent here from my doctor's office in Oklahoma City. I was under the impression that I would only be receiving a bill for MAYBE $150.00 MAX. When I received the bill yesterday afternoon, I was almost in tears at how overly EXPENSIVE my general blood work was. Before insurance processing the overall charges were nearly $5000. No that was not a typo. After processing, my responsibly is OVER $1700. I work for a medical billing company. I get how insurance works and I completely understand benefits and patient responsibility. These charges are consistent with a CRITIAL EMERGENCY ROOM VISIT.
I'm not one to post negative reviews, however, it is concerning to me that this is even acceptable. Needless to say, I will end up having to sell my left leg to cover the costs of this simple panel. Please consider this carefully if you have blood work done here.
I'm currently awaiting a phone call from the billing office for their lab. I'm hopefully they can help me with this bill.
While the billing office for this hospital did their best in trying to help me, they were unable to provide any sort of discount regarding my accounts. I am thoroughly disgusted with the extortionate billing practices and am being held responsible for nearly $2000 for a basic blood work-up.
