33,000 for a night in the hostipal



February 27, 2008 – Comments (3)

A few days ago, a relative of mine went out for a stroll, passed out, and was rushed into a hospital. The doctors did a CT scan and MRI, said everything was normal, and discharged him the next morning. The bill came for 33,000. Talk about an expensive one-night stand.

telcomac99, he had Medicare, so I'm afraid you'll have to pay the lion's share of his bill :)

But really, when prices reach that level, it's time to stop crying and start laughing.
