I just got our bill from my heart stress test it was almost 6,000 (one day test)
I had a stress test with IV because iam not able to jog on that machine
WOW i couldnt believe the cost
I live in the state of Wisconsin
Is this reasonable or expensive?

You should check with the CONSUMERS' PROTECTION Dept. of the Federal Trade Commision, because the bill seemed to be extremelly high. Many hospitals are overcharging to compensate for those patients who don't pay.
