Default What do you pay for a 1st class medical?

I would like to know what everyone pays for their 1st class medical without ekg? My Dr. Just raised his rate to $220.00. That seems crazy high. He also doesn't accept insurance.

$80 for the medical with the EKG, $45 without the EKG.

$220 seems very high without an EKG.

But then again, the last guy I saw in IAH was $200 without and $250 with the EKG. It was a lot but I liked him and dont mind paying above average if I feel comfortable with the doctor. Just as I wouldn't continue to see my current AME at $45 if I felt uncomfortable with the medical

I've lived in several different places in the country from expensive areas like SoCal to cheaper ones in the Midwest and have never paid more than $100 for a medical without an EKG. You're not going to gain a rapport with the Dr., you should just want a signature on a piece of paper. Why pay more? I think it's crazy 1st class medical costs haven't been bargained into our contracts, but that's just me.

Dr Griffin was doing them for $35 just north of DFW. Anyone know if he still charges that?
