Re: Hospitals are a joke!
My mother in law does billing for the hospital. She says yes, ,they do charge 20 bucks for a tylenol, but only because the insurance will only pay a certain really small percent of what they charge.
She said a person can be in the hospital, have a heart attack, open heart surgery, and then stay in CCU for 2 weeks, then regular unit for another week. They will have charges of around 600,000 but will only in the end get a few thousand. So it sounds bad, but they dont reallly get that much
