I am cash pay, so before I followed my Endo to her new clinic I was quoted office visits ‘New Patient $140’ and ‘Established Patient $100’. 1st visit was NO problem but a couple months after my 2nd visit I receive Statement for $270 on top of the $100 I paid at the office, total $370 (for same services I received at 1st visit).
99214 Office Visit, Est Patient, Level 4 $220 (falls in line with HealthCareBlueBook.com fair price)
95251 Gluc Monitor, Download, Interp, Report $150 (half of HealthCareBlueBook.com fair price)
Balance Due $270 (after $100 we initially agreed on)
After mentioning what I was quoted to Billing and Office, no response or withdrawal of initial quote. If I did not LIKE and trust my Endo I would actively be searching for another.
Can anyone share what their Insurance Negotiated Rates are for 99214 & 95251 so I can have $$ in mind if/when I ask for a discount??
Just seems IF I was quoted $100 and charged $370 for anything else I can simply refuse service or product RATHER than be shocked by additional costs later!!!
