Remember my health scare a couple weeks ago? The one I wrote about here? The breast lump that turned out to be nothing?
Well, that nothing cost me over $300. After health insurance. Not counting another $200 for my second ultrasound in six months.
Seriously considering skipping that bad boy.
You don't even want to know how expensive that first ultrasound was. But I'll tell you anyway.
That's right. Six hundred twenty-two dollars and twenty cents. For thirty minutes in a hospital breast center. Those people are banking.
A smart person would have at least attempted to check around on prices, but when you're scared you might have breast cancer money isn't at the top of your priority list.
But really, how do you check prices for an ultrasound? Can you seriously call up a hospital and say, "Yo, how much for that ultrasound over there?"
