Yikes

Got my first OB bill from appt #1....

It basically lists all the "professional" charges which includes 13 blood tests/urinalysis + of course the needle for said blood test.

Pending insurance......


*drumroll please*

$939!!

Good God, I hope Steve's insurance kicks ass on this one.

**note: this does not include the ultrasound I also had that day!

Having worked for the hospital for two and a half years now and the fear of "fraud." I would like to state for the record that EVERY SINGLE BILL includes some sort of fraud. Like charging you $100 for a fifty cent needle.

The needle was listed as $17 which seems expensive but at least is not $100! Sheesh!

isn't it crazy. I was high risk and my baby from start to finish was 100k! No lie! Thankfully, we had good insurance and only had to pay a few grand at the most.
