Health care: more things to check – facility and lab charges


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.
