Hospitals tend to work with you. There financial assistance dept. will try and help you on a sliding scale of your gross income.

Do hospitals charge those crazy prices in Europe? I've seen some stories on the news where a tourist is visiting some European country and an emergency or accident happens and they're surprised that they don't have to pay for treatment or the bill is for a small amount.

I believe medical bills can't be a factor in credit ratings and debt any more
I might be wrong but I think I read that sometime last year
And it sucks that they can still collect debt from u when u die mean.gif

I don't think it can, I just got my recent report and there aren't any medical bills listed. I have some from when my wife gave birth and they didn't show up

I remember seeing on the news that you can write to some state office and ask for medical bill exemptions or at least a big reduction.

Your family will still get charged from you even being put on a stretcher and even more soon as you step through the door whether they do anything to you or not

I know just calling an ambulance and being put in it is expensive

I'd politely call them up and let them know they'll never see that money.

That is ridiculous. How are people with no or bad insurance expected to pay that?
My medical bill from a 4-hour surgery (partial lung removal) with a top lung surgeon was €4400 here, so roughly $5000.

I got into a car accident back in 2007 and my bills were about the same as yours OP. You should double check that list to make sure they did everything that's on there.

Sue the other driver for any of your out of pocket expenses, and have him pay for your lawyer fees. Drunk drivers deserve to be penalized in as many ways as possible

the united states has created a culture which in where everything is for sale...everything is about the all mighty dollar...a dollar---think about it ,is a paper currency created by those who PRINT the paper....then lend it out and circulate....the creation of the monetary system and paper currency has created the current mess we are in...almost every mess we are in.

i always wondered how does the value of a piece of paper we get for work we've done change that same day we are earning it lol....one day the dollar is worth X and the next day it is worth Y...yet i still worked and busted my *** from 9-5....it doesn't make sense and it is a cheat system created by those in power

life itself is on the trading block for money...you think in this type of culture they care about anything...280k to keep you alive and treat you? what kind of life is that...who cares if you are covered...millions aren't...then what? like i would really like to know the net profit off that 280k....it must be ridiculous.

just looking at the bigger picture here...the picture of that bill just pissed me off coming in here for the second time... mean.gif

that was a joke man of course not, its not looking bad but lawsuits take time anyways not my main concern, trust me on that.
That wouldn't be my concern either, but if it did happen, I'm sueing for everything in the world! Hopefully the guy has some money.

Glad to see you doing better! Although we have free health care up here in Canada, I'm glad i have benefits that would cover me if anything ever happened if i was visiting the states. Those bills are like a mortgage!

Those prices are inflated like crazy.

The insurance companies aren't charged anywhere close to that number. I remember reading a story on it before (not sure if it's true).
