House and Home
Then a couple of weeks ago I had to go to the eye doctor because I got a floater in my left eye which started getting larger. Next I was seeing a flashing light and thought it might be a detached retina. So far it isn't. I paid $45 copay at the time of the visit and thought that would be it. But no, I just got the itemization of the bill. The total bill was $455. Medicare paid $43.96. The Medicare write off amount was $233.32. Now I still owe the doctor the remaining amount of $132.22. Why was my deductible more than what Medicare paid?
