How Much Does an EKG Cost?

An EKG, also known as an electrocardiogram, is a test that will examine a heart by reading the electrical levels it emits.  Electrodes are placed on several spots on the body and these electrical impulses will result in lines on pieces of paper or the computer screen.  An EKG is a painless procedure that takes less than 30 minutes to process.  The cost of this test can vary depending on your geographical location, the hospital, and other factors.

  1. Drew Nesmith (Locust Grove,GA) paid $112 and said:

    The doctor gave me an EKG when I went in complaining about a sore throat. I thought I might have strep. As far as I’m concerned this doctor was clearly ripping off the insurance company. I am healthy except for my sore throat; have no cardio issues.

    This was my first (and last) visit to this thief!

    Was it worth it: No

    I had an EKG done when I was 17 because of high blood pressure. When I was 15 I had chest pains and a doctor said I just had “growing pains”. The EKG I had done at 17 showed I was born with a heart valve that is too thick. This didn’t cost me anything since I was on my mom’s health insurance at the time. I was glad it was done, since it validated that I wasn’t imaging the pains and it wasn’t just “growing pains”.

    Crazy. Outside the USA, an EKG costs about $25. An MRI or an Echocardiogram (Ultra-sound), would each be $15.

    Something is very, very wrong with the cost of American medicine. It will only be made worse by the ACA, but it”s still like 40 times more expensive than it needs to be.

    More medical tourism may be in your future.
