9. One last thing. When you get the bill, it will have CPT codes on it.

These are the codes medicare and insurance use to classify consultations and procedures. You can find out what medicare pays for these codes for your region on the internet. You should request (insist) that you not pay any more than medicare would pay. You will most likely get individual bills from various physicians. They will also have these codes and you should negotiate with them as well.

You are not being given anything here. You will be charged, but you should only agree to pay what others (medicare and ins) do. There have been suits in some states which have supported this and some laws passed about it.

Good luck.
