Customer Question
I went to Duncan Regional...
I went to Duncan Regional Hospital in Duncan Ok today to be treated (by I.V.- 1 bag) and a shot of Phenagren (?) for what the P.A referred to as Moderate Dehydration. (I had been vomiting and had the dry heaves for the previous 8 hours.) I was there for a total of about 2 1/2 hours. Can you give me a very rough idea how much this will end up costing me out of pocket....I have 80/20 insurance but had to pay them $100 up front before leaving the emergency room.

Well, this is a bit tough because we are dealing with two unknowns -- how much the er charge is going to be (each one charges differently) and your specific insurance.
For just an examination and iv fluids, the total charge can be several hundred dollars to perhaps over a thousand dollars, of which 80% will be covered by your insurance. So my best guess may be a couple hundred to 400 out of pocket for you, for the simple visit.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
