My brother's heart attack, with life flight, was $75,000.
And the really bad thing? The doctor thinks he might have to go in and re- fix one of his meniscus again.
Apply for Aid!
We had a baby in for 6 days last year the bill before insurance was over 30K. We still were left with 8K. We make around 50K annual and we still qualified for 80% aid. So we paid only $1600 what a relief. They put us on a payment plan didn't charge interest . 2 more payments and we are done.
The nice thing with medical bills is that I found people realize they are dreadfully spendy and they work with you.
I was thinking DD's ER visit and 4 days in the hospital was spendy at $20,000. I guess I was wrong.
The itemized bill was humorous. For instance, they'd give her 4 - 100mg tablets of ibuprofen (very high fever) at $16 a pill, then later they'd give her 1 - 400mg tablet of ibuprofen at $9 a pill. What a huge cost difference! We're lucky that her CAT scan was only $4600.
