Insurance companies work relentlessly to pay nothing or close to it. It's how they make money. Of course, the "simple test" will be priced at $35,000 and the insurance will cover $89, or something along those lines.

My wife has been dealing with a bad kidney for four years. Last week we went to Mayo Clinic for diagnostics and surgery. The decision was made to remove the kidney.

The insurance company claimed that a kidney removal should not be an inpatient procedure. They didn't want to pay for the hospital stay. Mayo played three card Monty with the insurance company and called it "observation" for two nights instead of "admission."

The idea that removing a major organ, with significant risk of bleeding, blood pressure spikes, infection, etc. doesn't require a hospital stay is laughable. But an insurance company will sure as hell try to wriggle out of that expense.
