Am I reading that wrong?

I would also suspect that Doctors don't charge by the length of the appointment, like a taxi meter, but rather by how much time they have alloted for an appointment.

Actually my portion after insurance was $3.22 ,however ,my point is that doctors rip off insurance carriers . The doctor billed with a procedure code that states that the patient was treated for 45 minutes .
