    that's fur sure. but really, the mri was done because the ultrasound tech got a shitty picture and there was a shadow on it. that's a lot a money to pay because the ultrasound tech sucked. :c

    my brother was hospitalized and in rehab for 15 months, I haven't seen a bill, but I'm sure it's upwards of $500,000+

    You do realize that the cost has built-into it the cost of the uninsured, right?

    the worst thing to happen to affordable health care in this nation is employer sponsored health insurance. its allowed the medical prrofession to go crazy with costs, shit we dont need & doctors/admin salaries run amok.

    The fact that this point wasn't hammered home is a mystery to me. People don't realize that they had a lifetime limit that could be met with one catastrophic illness or injury
