SMALL FIBER NERVE biopsy - $5000.00 LAB charge
Dr. Mike Lauer at the Hiram/Dallas office suggested a "small nerve fiber" biopsy. He asked the office person to check with my insurance, (AETNA POSII)Was I purposely supposed to overhear this? I was told the in office procedure was covered. Pathology LAB of Ga. billed AETNA 2838.00 and I had to pay 630.00. The other lab billed 2000.00 and I am told there is 700.00 that AETNA has not payed. Above reasonable charges per AETNA. Out of net LAbs. **NO WARNING FROM DOCTOR OR STAFF** I accept some resp. as I should have had AETNA pre-determine benefits. Same has happened to others.
