Re: average hospital costs?
I had a $2500 deductible plus 20% so i ended up having to pay quite a bit. about $1350 to the ob, part of that was the insurance denied my 20 wk ultrasound so i had to pay for the whole thing. $1800 to the hospital for my bill and $250 for the baby's bill, $130 for my epidural and i somehow ended up having to pay around $35 for her hearing test.
So around $3565 total. That was just 8 months ago and I'm still paying the Dr and the hospital every month trying to get it paid off because I'm pregnant again. This time my deductible went up another $200 and each person has a deductible instead of the family so the baby's bill will be about $1,100 I think and mine will be $200 more.
Oh and I had a vaginal delivery with no complications and left the hospital 24hrs after she was born.
