Medical Cost Crazy

I fell last week on a heavy glass table and gashed my head. David thought stitches were needed so off we went. I received six staples and out the door in less than three hours. The bill came yesterday, $12,000, I had more than a heart attack. We went to General Doctor to have a RN remove the staples. Five minutes of effort cost $88.00. Are these people on crack?

There are many hard-working people with kids and we know they get sick, how can someone manage? I know insurance will come back and say NO it’s not $12,000 it’s $2,000. The games insurance and the approved providers play. If you go out of network you are in for a shock.

If possible always check your insurance website to see that your doctor, hospital or Doc in a Box is covered in network.  M

  1. I have to say that I love the title of this post! Medical bills are out of control and so is Trump. Both issues need to get a handle on their problems! The US is the only civilized country that does not have free medical. It is so crazy how much it all costs and it is only going to increase because of Trump!
