Shop for your services/procedures.
I really thought in the same city, that two hospitals would have comparable prices on the same procedure.
One of them charges my insurance about $4900 for an Axumin PET scan.
The other hospital only charges about $2100 for that same scan.
The difference is due to the two hospital's contracts with my insurance company.
To say the least, I was blown away!!
With the first hospital my out of pocket would have been about $2400, and the other $1850.
This discrepancy is a result of both the original charge and my deductible and the 20% I'd be paying.
Needless to say, yet I will. I'm canceling my appt with the first and scheduling with the second.
