You probably signed something at the hospital agreeing that if the insurance would not pay, you would be personally responsible. You might want to seek out an attorney who brings what is called "bad faith" claims against insurance companies that do not pay claims. If you believe you had coverage for the test, that would be one thing you could try. The other thing you could try is negotiating with the hospital on the amount of the bill. If you can demonstrate to the hospital that you do not have the means to pay the bill, they will generally negotiate a lower amount and/or a payment plan.
