Unfortunately it seems (generally speaking) that uninsured people are charged more than the charges allowed to be submitted by Drs. for people who
have insurance because if you have insurance the Drs. have contracted to receive a certain amount.
However, compared to what you say you were charged vs. what I know my Dr. gets between me and the insurance company, I do not think the charges were
high in comparison, in fact they were less.
I will mention, since I have just left my employment and found out the cost of my plan (in case I take COBRA), it is approximately $427.00/month to
have the benefits I had.
