What do cardiologists charge for a visit?
If you want to know what your costs will be, it is best to consider: (1) 2 office visits, (2) an EKG and (3) a stress test and/or echocardiogram. Additionally, it is important to know that more hospitals are buying cardiologist practices so that your tests are billed through the hospital (which can be more expensive). So even if you have the test done in a ‘doctor’s office’ it may actually be billed through the hospital. The difference in cost for a stress test could be $500 if billed through the office vs. $4,000 if billed through the hospital. With Alight’s healthcare navigation solutions, we can provide this type of pricing information in advance to our members.
