My rheumatologist wants bilateral, 3-view X-rays of my hands/wrists, feet, and ankles... to the tune of $700 estimated price. Neither the doctor's office nor my insurance seems able to tell me what the contracted rate that I'll actually pay. I've been on the phone since 8:30 this morning and back and forth between the imaging facility, to my insurance, then back to a different department in the imaging facility. The imaging facility gave me all the codes, but my insurance company won't give me the contract rate information (and the imaging facility says they don't give that information out) even though I have the codes. The imaging facility has to call provider services, and THEY have to give them the codes, then call me back with a total estimate.
