Hi-Did you check with your insurance company to make sure the tests aren't covered? Did the lab at least try to bill your insurance?The doctor should tell you exactly why she ordered the tests and what they showed, but before you make another appointment to get that info., make sure your insurance will pay for the follow-up visit.
In an ideal world, everything would be synchronized. However, the burden of responsibility falls on the consumer, or the patient to be informed about the level and degree of insurance coverage. Take a moment and step into your physician’s shoes. There are so many insurance plans with so varying eligibility factors. It makes more sense to have the physician focus on your health, than your coverage. So, I would recommend that for all future visits, you know the degree and extent of what is covered and what is not covered. Then you can approach your physician from an informed standpoint. Otherwise, it may prove costly.
