For those who discounted my argument that my going to the E.R. and, then being forced to stay over night so Ron would be OK, would be prohibitively expensive I offer the following bill I received from the hospital. If this doesn’t show you how much we need health care reform, then there is nothing I can do to convince you. This is why our census is down, why people are waiting until everything is life threatening, even going so far to let their health needs wait until they are unable to make the decision and someone else sends them to the E.R.
Here is my bill. Remember I went in to the E.R. About 11oo AM and left the C.D.U. about 1600 Pm.
Now I know that this will change, insurance, discounts and such, but it will still cost me about 3 grand by my figures. If not a lot more. Hugs
