What are the costs of some of the non-covered expenses, such as ultrasounds?

Posted in Fees

I do not charge my clients for ultrasounds performed in my office. This is not a diagnostic ultrasound. If a diagnostic ultrasound becomes necessary (which is rare), or you request one, we will refer you to a sonographer; the cost is approximately $150-250.

The Colorado Department of Health is charging $92.00 for the newborn screen (or more commonly called the PKU), and this is due at the time the screen is performed in my office, typically at the 10-day postpartum visit.
