I recently had surgery to repair an abdominal hernia and remove endometriosis and adhesions. I stayed in the hospital one night. The bill was over $46,000.00. This did not include the anesthesiologist, pathology, and some other people. The total was just about $50,000.00
Fortunately, I have insurance so it only cost me $150.00.
Now this is the disgusting part. My insurance company paid the hospital less than $3000.00. They send me statements that show what they were billed and what they actually paid. If I had to pay this myself, the hospital would have never reduced it that much.
1 night? Wow. Sorry about
Obama better get the Health Care Reform package passed and send these insurance executives to Guantanomo Bay.
$150 sounds like an extremely good deal to me. Extremely.Sounds like he works in health care or the government.
