|Papers and vials for the lab|
|Walking across the street to the clinic|
It's testing day! Today I had an appointment set to get my physical, EKG and chest x-ray. My papers and blood vials had arrived in the mail earlier this week, so I packed everything up and headed across the street to my doctor's office.
Once I got there my doctor's office informed me that there might be an issue with my getting the tests taken at their clinic. The issue seemed to be with the billing and the fact that my doctor's office would not participate in third party billing. Hmmmm.... their solution was to instead bill me and have me try to get reimbursed by the Colorado Hospital. Clearly this was not going to work, especially since the billing instructions ask the testing clinic to cover 30% as a goodwill discount since this is a donation process. I was asked to go sit in the waiting room while they tried to sort everything out.
Finally the nurse came to get me and told me they would go ahead with the physical since that was being billed to my own insurance, and they would keep me posted about the rest of the testing.
