I arrived and was sent to the cashier check in. She checked all my info, made the appropriate changes.
And we discussed what the insurance told me. She said they would not send my chart back to the sonographer until I paid my portion. So I was right, Cigna! Cigna told me that I would not pay anything at all up front.
the interesting thing was that while Cigna could not tell me what I would be asked to pay, the Imaging Center told me that my portion would be $8.32.
Neither me nor the cashier could believe it. She said, usually the patient doesn't pay LESS.
Well, that still remains to be seen, they will be billing me what is leftover no matter what the upfront cost was. The cashier did say that the cost of the test would be determined at some future point. So I am thinking the $8.32 was the cost of the visit rather than the test.
Still not sure how it will all work out, but I did have a nice lunch with Frank at Rotolos where I had good pizza..........just sayin'
