$7277.36 was the submitted fee for a nuclear stress test. This is a classic example of a basic problem with the health system. Patients with insurance are subsidizing providers and those with no insurance. Inflated fees result in significant out-of-pocket expenses causing financial stress for non-affluent individuals.
