Was offered $299 for the procedure at the physician's office before insurance. After insurance, it was $3490 with a $2795 write-off leaving me with a balance of $695 which is higher than the going rate without any insurance at all.
Calling their billing department was a complete failure as well as everyone working there is incompetent. They're only there to take credit cards. Ariosa Diagnostics refused to take the $299 payment, which is what was offered initially, and demanded the higher $695 payment.
After they declined the payment of $299, we refused to pay a dime more and will let the court figure this one out.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
