Fees can vary from area to area and doctor to doctor. Managed care doesn't care if the charges are excessive, since they will only pay the contracted amount.
This is like asking why a house in Beverly Hills will cost so much more than a house in a small town in the mid west. I am sure your doctor will give a detailed account of the charges. You can then discuss this with them and voice your concerns.
