Post Bill on 1st Facet Injection

I just received my bill/statement from the local hospital where I received my 1st ever Facet Injction. I was an Outpatient in a nearby Satellite/Office building. I was shocked to see the hospital BILLED Medicare $3,403.26 ! Fortunately, I switched from a Medicare Advantage to a PlanG supplement recentley. I have had rounds of Epidural Blocks in the past but I received no significant pain relief from either those or this ..my first Facet Injection. I can't believe the cost of these & I'm wondering have these helped anybody ? I always look at medical & medicinal issuses with a Plus/Minus approach. You know..what is the plus and does it outweigh the minus kind of thing. Although this will not cost me out-of-pocket, my insurances cost me around $300/month Total. Not including PartD costs. My Back Surgeon has contacted the Pain Intervention doc for me to have another one. Right now I believe its both a waste of money & time. But once again, has these Facet Injections helped anybody?? I'm new to this board but I believe you can view my symptons etc. I would like to hear from you. Thanks

Re: Bill on 1st Facet Injection

3,403 dollars for an injection?! I'm just glad I don't have to pay for that kind of stuff over here. Socialism rules!
