Medical Bills

I’m holding in my hand bills for the medical treatment I received in Feb and March.

$105.06 pelvic ultrasound (there will be another one of these)
$482.34 CT scan abdomen
$108.56 Mercy ER
$3725.48 Mercy inpatient
$500.00 hospital admission
$?? perscriptions


The total hospitalization fee billed to my insurance was $98,000. I have to pay $3725.48 + $500.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why we have medical insurance. Without it, Mercy would own much of my house.

    I guess the next time I peel back the heavens and scream at the gods on your behalf that I should pay attention to the details! Ya know…like (insert heavenward gesture) “Fix this thing down here…and make it less expensive this time!”. Although I guess if you pray cheaply you get cheap miracles. I’m very happy you’re still here

    Oh yes, it could be so much worse — in so many ways! I’m very grateful to be alive!
