Anyone know yet what their hospital bill is going to be like?
My friend has insurance (somewhat decent insurance I think/thought?)
When she checked in she paid a $1700 co-pay and they just got another bill for $2800... the amount their insurance didn't cover!
I want to know ahead of time how much it will cost so I'm not surprised/shocked by a big bill and make sure I set that money aside so I don't overspend on nursery stuff etc..
Thanks I just had it re-confirmed yesterday, u/s tech thought it was a boy but didnt stick with it. Had an amnio done due to family chromosome issues and got results back yesterday and confirmed BOY!! and completely ecstatic!
with my first I had a bill for my 1st prenatal visit and it was $6000 for exam and blood work, I dont remember what I actually ended up paying for it but I think insurance covered most of it, if I remember correctly it was a little over $2500
I just talked to my insurance.
I have a $250 deductible which I'm sure I'll have met before May.
I have a PPO but of course its still cheaper to stay in-network.
I am covered for 90% of the costs up to my out-of-pocket maximum.
If I'm in-network, that maximum is $2k
if I'm out-of-network, then that maximum is $6k
So I'm hoping my friends who got slapped with such a big bill either have a high deductible, a high out-of-pocket maximum or were out of network or something like that. I mean hoping that it explains why they paid so much ... because if they should have been covered then I could get similarly screwed, lol!
