I went to the Radiology Center for mine and it wasn’t billed as surgical.  It was billed as a normal Xray.  I did have to pay my deductible though which I didn’t mind because I was going to have my myomectomy @ the end of the year.  This year I will go back to the same center and won’t have to worry about my deductible since I’ve been under chiro care since Jan.

I would fight it.  It’s definitely radiography, not surgery!  I paid cash so I don’t know what my ins. does.

I had mine at my RE’s office and it was billed as diagnostic.  I didn’t even  have a co-pay

Mine was billed as surgery, but ONLY because it was performed during my lap.  A regular HSG is not a surgical procedure – I would definitely fight it.

The billing error could be an error in CPT codes. I work in benefits for my company – and this happens all the time! Ask them to double check it and resubmit it for insurance. Good luck!

@kayakgirl73:  Slightly different system here, but ours was definitely a diagnostic x-ray/ultrasound experience – and we got a small amount covered, and paid the $480 out of pocket cost ourself. 🙂

@kayakgirl73:  Did you end up fighting the charge? I recently had an HSG and just got the bill. My insurance covered a lot, but it was billed as surgical and radiological! I’m pretty upset because I was not notified that it would be billed as surgical, so I wasn’t expecting to pay for that. I think I’m going to try to fight it.

Did you contact the doctor or the insurance?

They billed me as a surgical procedure too..I had to fight it and eventually had it reduced from $400ish to $25!
