Why does your doctor do it for free?  My insurance had to pay for my TEE test.

My insurance also paid for the test.  I can't remember how much it was, but I'd say it was a few thousand anyway.  There are hospital charges, physician fees, radiology, lab, medicine and supplies, etc.

Are you having it done in a hospital?

I just got an itemized copy of my husband's hospital bill and he had a TEE while admitted.  We live in Iowa and we have Aetna insurance.  There were the following charges on his bill:  Echo TEE complete = $1040, Echo doppler complete = $383, Echo color flow mapping = $383, Concurrent review = $55, Demerol HCL Inj. per 100 mg = $55.   As mentioned above, his insurance covered most of the bill for the 48 hr. hospital stay, but there was a deductable amount.  I am using the term "itemized bill" very loosely, as I can't tell from it what the insurance paid and what is deductable on individual services.  Hope this gives you some idea of the cost of the free treatment you are getting.
