[QUOTE=JacquelineL]I thought it would be about $1000, but was shocked when I saw the bill. I was charged twice for "facility charge" at $995 each. When I asked, they said it was another charge since the doctor did a biopsy to check for colitis in case I needed antibiotics. I had had aching a few weeks before, but cleared up with antibiotics. This procedure was supposed to be a routine screening, I thought. There were two colonoscopy charges by the doctor at $1000 apiece. One for the tiny polyp and one for the colitis biopsy. With the lab charge, it came to $4500. Luckily, I have medicare and will only pay a few hundred dollars, but what do those without insurance do?[/QUOTE]

I just got a Colonoscopy and it's my estimate that all charges will add up to $7,000!! I have insurance. Everbody over-charges in hopes of getting as much as they can out of the insurance company. It's no wonder why healthcare insurance is way out of control.
