  • Did you have lab work or Xrays?

  • Oh my lord!!! That is ridiculous! Unless you had something major done (lots of labs, other services) that is WAY too much to have someone check your ear and write you an Rx

  • Call and ask them to send you an itemized bill.

  • Definately call and find out why it's so high. Also, visit:

  • Because there is no cap on how much your provider can charge you. That's why programs like Ameriplan are out there. If you don't know anything about it ask me. Frankly though I would get an itemized bill and go talk to them. They may be able to wave some of the little fees or discount you depending on your income and such.
