Also… I dont understand why s.s. deducts hundreds of dollars each month for Medicare, then my blood tests cost 5x more. Is this a Mayo norm?? I realize this is a billing topic…but I'm being screened for MGUS.

I have Medicare and have HealthNet as my secondary. My lab copays are $12. Sometimes ther is a copay for the lab work and a copay for having the blood drawn.
Also, sometimes the first of the year bills might be higher in order to meet the yearly deduction.
Talk to your secondary insurance. You might not have their best policy for your situation.
