  • Not all tests are covered by insurance. It even states that in the papers you sign before treatment that if a test is not covered by your insurance you are responsible for the bill

  • Review your policy and appeal the decision.

  • I agree with Mrs.Owen. Insurance doesn't always cover 100% of all costs. If it's not covered under your policy you can TRY to appeal it but it usually takes extenuating circumstances from them to reverse the decision. You very well could be paying this bill. As the one receiving services, the onus is on you to know your policy and question the necessity of any testing not specifically covered under it.
