Re: Hospitals are a joke!
The insuranc ecompany won't actually let them charge that. They adjust the bill down. I used to handle the insurance where I worked previously and one person has a bill for 16,000 for having the baby. After insurance got done it was between 4000 and 5000. The people who really get it are the one's with no insurance bc they actually have to pay that bill. If they pay it all at once they can get a cash discount usually but that is it and it is only like 20%.
