Default Medicals cost $377!!

Greetings,

I just did my Medicals here in the US and was charged $377. Is this the average
fee for medicals? ( I would think that $175 - $200 would have been more
reasonable). The clinic also said that it could take upto a week before they
get the results.
Do they normally send it by registered mail?
Is there anyway I can know if the Health office in Ottawa receive it after it
is mailed?

Thanks for all your help.
Dave

Hi Singleguy33,

    > reasonable). The clinic also said that it could take upto a week before they

The fee charged for medical report will differ between from one clinic
to another. So shop around. Yes, it will take about 10days to receive
all the medical information from the testing agencies. I was told that
the medical fee had increased (not much) since Jan due to HIV
mandatory testing.I got rates quoted from $190 to $355 for medical
testing. I paid $255 in New York.

    > Do they normally send it by registered mail?

the medical clinic will take the reponsibilty to send it by fedex or
other faster means.

    > Is there anyway I can know if the Health office in Ottawa receive it after it
    > is mailed?

You will not receive any notification from the Ottawa office. The Ottawa office will only respond if there is something wrong with the medical reports. Yes, it is absurd. But that is the way it is. I checked my doctor if he had heard anything from the Ottawa office. [email protected] (Singlguy33) wrote in message news:...

Default Re: Medicals cost $377!! ... cost me $620 (one person in Berkely)

All of you are lucky ones - my Medical cost $620 (one person) and
waste of seven months in Berkeley (Bay Area / San Francisco,
California).

$420 for initial and the additional $200 for the fictitious X-Ray
report (indeterminist). They clearly told that the reason they give
such confusing report so that Ottowa ask for repeat X-Rays is: they
only get $40 for the initial X-Ray as a contract with the Berkeley
Family Practitioners clinics.

Repeat X-Ray cost $135 and the Doctors charge additional $65 for
opening the letter and FedEx (which they send in bulk only once a
month) cost.

So unless you want to waste time and money, AVOID BERKELEY doctors.
