  • The cost of ECG test?

    I took a physical exam today, and I failed abdominal ECG because of my low heart rate. They told me that my heart rate is low not because of bad health, but athletic people have low blood pressure. WTF?!?! So they want me to go to the cardiologist on my own and take an abdominal ECG test to make sure that my heart is just fine. So my question is how much does abdominal ECG cost?

    Contact the medical provider. Posts like this make me wonder if common sense is still common.

      I did, and most of them basically told me to come to their office for more details. I want to know the general price so I won't get ripped off.

        If you can't figure out who to ask for a MEDICAL question------------------you don't deserve to be a cop
        Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

          Do you have insurance? If so, it should cover the cost(s) of the exam. The bottom line question is, how badly do you want the job?

              Don't believe I stated flatly that it did. I alluded to the possibility. The bottom line question remains. How badly does he want the job??

                In your profile, you mention that you're a Security Officer. Additionally you state "No" to the question of whether or not you're a sworn police officer. Just a reminder, and not intending to demean your position, but a Security Officer is NOT a Police Officer.

                This is "Ask a Cop", not "Ask a Security Officer". For you to continue to reply to queries here violates the TOS, and can get you banned. I've no doubt you're intentions were to assist the OP, but just a caution to you.

                    No. You don't meet the criteria.

                      "NO". You've been honest though, I'll give you that.

                          In my 24 years as a paramedic, I have never heard of an "abdominal" ECG. I think you may have some wrong terminology there. Regardless, ECGs are ridiculously commonplace and I would imagine you could get one, depending on your location in the country, for between $400-$600. That's just a guess. There will be a technical fee (the actual ECG) and the professional fee (to read the results).

                            I think he means MRI if it's the ABD. ECG if it's cardiac. But he doesn't even know...
