you can ask to have some one from patient finance coem in and explain to you what the charge is for the proposed care, before you concent.

and always remember you can refuse any 'care' proposed if you think it is not nessicary. (I refused alot of the first appt screening because I knew they could obtain the info from my transfer chart when it came)
