If you really want to know call your doctor’s billing person and ask.

Same treatment each week, but different charges to insurance company. I cant understand that. How can a BCG treatment vary in cost week to week? Makes no sense.

From 14 month old BCG EOBs
Amount Billed $ 907
Total paid (by Medicare & Secondary) $ 226
PPO secondary, NOT an HMO, Non-capitated.

The "extra" $681 billed must just be wishful thinking by the clinic.

What's with this Bleeding ? 6/2015
DX: HG Papillary & CIS
3 Years and 30 BCG/BCG+Inf

That sounds like a simple question, but it isn't! The health system in the US is so screwed up....every one of us was probably charged a different amount that was probably paid by our insurance (with a co-pay to us) so we didn't even pay attention.

Perhaps someone here has a copy of their Medicare or Insurance statement with an amount on it (but that is probably not what was paid.)

Lots of "probablies"
