Does anyone have a ballpark idea of what an EKG costs??

I'm waiting on a bill from the hospital, wondering if it's really going to fuck me.

It depends on a lot of things. I've seen people pay as much as $900 and as little as $17 depending on their insurance, how long/in depth the testing was, what kind of hospital they went to, and who treated them.

average insurance at a public hospital with a no-one physician and a nothing special test is probably a few hundred dollars.

No insurance. I was expecting it to be a lot more than that, so that's a relief.

$250 out-of-pocket where i work

we have a discount for uninsured patients, making it around $150-190 depending on your ability to pay. most hospitals probably offer something similar payment-wise.

the funny thing is you can definitely get a used one on ebay for less than the cost of the test.

sad thing is it only takes about ten mins to do the test, easiest thing I do all day.
