How Much Does an EKG Cost?

An EKG, also known as an electrocardiogram, is a test that will examine the heart by reading the electrical levels it emits.   This test is often done to see if you’re at risk of heart disease and/or a heart attack.  It’s also recommended for breathing problems, tiredness or unusual sounds coming from the heart.

During the procedure, 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 if insurance is involved.

How much did you spend?

Was it worth it?  

  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
