Can my pain be any worse? On April 5, I went to the University of Miami health system to see a doctor after a referral to check out my hurting elbow. I didn’t understand that a visit would cost me $481 out of pocket. It seems that most of the U locations are billed as hospital visits. So they get to make you pay the “rent” at the facility, pay the doctor for his services and pay for the X-rays separately — plus all the other stuff that Florida Blue shows it paid. Now the pain is in my elbow and my wallet.
