Patient :Hi there, I recently received a bill from a quick outpatient facility. I was having symptoms of a kidney infection and scheduled to leave 2 days later. The bill is itemized as having a pregnancy test as one of the diagnostics performed. Is this normal? When asked if there was a chance if I was pregnant, I replied "No" because my husband has had a vasectomy. So why would this test be done and I wasn't informed? I'm looking for some logical, medical rationale for this and finding none. Thanks for your help!
