How can we control our medical expenses and still get the heart care my husband needs?


Posted by sbcheli

For months, my husband has had sternum pain with exertion or strong emotions. He just had an EKG that showed a dip at the inferior lateral T-wave. The doctor ordered an imaging stress test (cardiolite), but we have a $3500 deductible and the test is $2500, so we cancelled until we have more info. Our fear is we'll pay $2500 and the test will be inconclusive and/or lead to another expensive test, and then another. Should we just go for a heart catheterization to begin with?
