Medicare for all

Today, I went to a doctor's appointment, being concerned about some abnormal swelling and soreness in one of my testicles. They fondled my balls for 20 seconds before saying, "Yeah, that's abnormal. You should probably go get an ultrasound somewhere and maybe take some ibuprofen for the pain. That'll be $265." FML

So the attending physician/doctor told you how much you owed for your bill? Also, MRI's require a referral (in my experience) and I hope you left there with one. Otherwise you'll end up needing another doc visit.

they didn't say MRI, they said Ultrasound, which can be done in office, without a referral. depending on what his insurance will or won't pay, yep, they can tell you your bill when you leave, or at least your co-pay, which has to be paid when you get seen.

please go somewhere else to get this checked out. I do not want to scare you but my husband is a testicular cancer survivor and you need to get this looked at!
