Hospitals are money hungry jackasses! RANT ❥New Beginnings Due September 2; TTC since Jul 2012; 1 child; California 16189 posts

Why are hospitals such scumbags when it comes to billing! $12,508.00 for a emergency room visit?! I didn't even get a room! I was shoved into the hallway! The prices Are bogus! $6,300 for a cat scan then and additional $550 just to read it?! WTF?! My bill BEFORE insurance to Deliver Arianna was only $11,000 and that was WITH us staying their for 5 days and her being in the NICU. If I weren't Indian I'd never go to the dr. again. You either die in pain or die owing a debt to price gauging money hungry douche bag hospitals. No wonder they were able to afford a new hospital! not to mention they can't even get who to bill straight in the first place!

Wow in Australia we wouldn't pay for any of that. It'd all be free.

Quoting ❥New Beginnings:" I'm native American so my bills are taken care of"

Ohhhhh I see. I understand what you mean now. Sorry I didn't know that. But I guess I should have been able to put it together because at work we have programs were Native American's aren't billed.

My son had surgery on his teeth. We were told insurance was paying all but 650 which we ha to pay upfront. They messed up and didn't submit the hospital part just the dentist part. Our bill was $14,000 for the hospital. The dentist later came back and said we owed them another 600. It is ridiculous

What that's crazy, they assign you a hospital for care? What if you can't make it to that one.
