This is where doctor comes in.
Hi have to give you diagnosis (ICD-9 code).
I found out that some doctors treat this piece of bureaucracy lightly, and patient may get stuck with the bill.
You do need proper ICD-9 codes.
I posted # of times how important it is to get the ICD-9 codes in order.
And if your doc have a problems with that
get another doctor.
My codes are printed on the first page of bill on post #1.

My insurance is trying to say that Hypogonadism is the same thing as infertility treatment and they wont pay for my labs, even though they are 2 COMPLETELY different ICD9 codes.
That leaves me stuck w a $1,700 lab to cover, I have no idea what to do but I do know Im getting fukced over!

Everybody over 65 and close to 100% people on welfare have this insurance.
(Thanks to Mayor Rudy Guliani's efforts, NYC have more paying customers and less welfare by few millions)
I hope nobody will try to "improve" on Medicare.
Elections are comming, my cortisol level is few notches up everytime I see her trying to "help" me.
My wife is under 65 so she still have my comprehensive package from BC/BS from my former employer.
The BC/BS is my secondary insurance, but I do not think it paid anything since I got Medicare.
I am sensitive to health care and insurance issues, and politicians trying to improve on it.
I had five surgeries under total anestesia not counting minor ones.
I am getting ready to call and schedule my Green Laser prostate surgery.
So far for all this troubles I paid couple of thousand $$.
I think I got good deal from good old USA.
I (and my grown up children) do not need any "improvements" in this area.

I think its either Three Rivers or Signature Care tho
I dont really understand how they are so incompetant about this tho, its right in front of their eyes. 2 completly diff icd9 codes but yet they consider them the same!? how can they get away w this?

It is up to doctor to give you the correct codes.
It is up to your doctor to correct mistakes.
Instead most of the time doctor do not care, he rather spend time explaining to you why he cannot help you.
Happens often enough.

Look at the picture of back side of my bill, post#1.
There is a list of insurance companies that Quest do bussiness with.

This thread is about costs.
I just got a invoice (not a bill) about my
Metabolic Analysis Profile at Genova Diagnostics
JanSz-Metabolic Analysis and Cellular Energy
they send the bill to Medicare and BCBS.
Wonder what my out of pocket expense will be.
