I had some blood testing performed to determine if I could come off a medication. I THOUGHT that what we were running was some very basic tests. It turns out to have included some tests that were pretty specialized, expensive, and not covered by insurance.
So, I'm at fault for not asking specifically what exactly was being tested. I admit that. But now I have in hand a large unexpected bill from the analytical laboratory.
I just wish everything could be more transparent to the patient BEFORE the big bill shows up in the mail.
Edited to add the kicker: All test results were good. Doc still wants me on the medication. So why did we test?
