I had lithotripsy done for kidney stone and got a bill from urologist for $2200 and from anesthesiologist for $800 and thought that was it. Then the hospital has sent a bill for over $21,000 for a 2 hour outpatient treatment!!!! Can this be right? My God we have very high deductible insurance and may have to pay a lot of this. Has Anyone else see a bill like this? We are in the US.
I had a lithotripsy in Sept 2004 and the cost was 21,000 and the second time was in Nov. 2005 and that was $23,000. I had a stent placement in Jan. 2006 and the cost for that was almost $9,000. I think I want to become a urologist.
