The Real Reason Hospitals Are So Expensive

So much about this rings true, especially this segment. In essence I said I had no insurance and would pay cash. Most, but not all of my bill was instantly discounted by 60%.

I’m at about $38,500 now including follow-up, by minus drugs. I still have to work out how to pay that.

    1. Who has “money” sitting around anymore?

      I don’t. I have a zero earned income since I don’t work. I have investments and assets and get by. I’ll post another entry on this soon. The actual impact on my heart/athletic performance is more interesting and exploring what I can do. Thanks for the comment
