Cost of biopsy

Hi I am about 2 months over due for bladder biopsy.Due to my mental state which is much better now.I am having trouble affording the procedure.My care team does not seem to want to help very scared time is going by.

  1. I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope that you are getting some therapy and assistance with your mental health. Going through bladder cancer can be very challenging that way. Do you have insurance? Insurance should cover your biopsy procedure as long as it is medically indicated. ~Liz, Moderator

    1. @thank you liz my deductible is high.Doing my best to get things scheduled so overwhelming

      1. @Bunkster - Do you have a High deductible health plans where you must pay the entire amount before anything is covered or just a plan with a high out of pocket? High ded plans can be challenging if you do not have money in an HSA account to cover the costs. It may be of value to speak with the billing dept where you go and see if they can work with you or have other options. It does not seem right that you cannot receive proper testing due to a high cost and your restrictions with your insurance. I hope that you can find a resolution soon. My best to you.
