Went for the ever-popular colonoscopy last fall. Made sure the doctor was in-network, but the procedure was handled at the doctor’s office operating room. Medicare Advantage handled the doctor, but now I have bills from an anesthesiologist I didn’t know so couldn’t have checked on, and a “facilities charge” of nearly $400. Oh boy.
Had the annual blood tests by my in-network primary care doctor. Exam covered, but now I have an additional bill from the lab that did the blood work. Oh boy.
And here I thought things might get easier as I piled on the years.
