Cost of cystoscopy

11 years 10 months ago #8077 by ConnieOnAQuest
I'm wondering how cystos are billed by different urologists in the U.S. When I go for my annual check up -- a five minute look inside my bladder -- I get a bill for a "surgery." I end up paying about $350. I have Blue Cross/Blue Shield insurance. I recall back when I had another insurance co., I only paid the office co-payment. Is it just me, or does this sound like I'm being gouged by somebody? I called to complain to my doctor's billing dept., and they told me to talk to my insurance company. I called my insurance company, and they told me to call the provider.

Has anyone else disputed a bill that they thought was exorbitant, or not coded correctly. Has anyone been successful?

God help you in the good old US of A if you're not rich and have a serious illness.
