You should be happy you was not one of the lot who lost their insurance due to obuma care.

Curious though was the accident your fault

Pappagor, the bill the hospital shows you almost certainly isn't the amount your insurance company will pay or even they're billed, they'll have a "most favored nation status" contract with the hospital, I.e. whatever the blue cross of Minn. or some other big insurer negotiates 40% of cash bills is typical, it will vary.

Thus if you have a copay, it'll be based on the cash bill I.e. 80/20 plan you'd pay ~23K$ your insurer pay the balance of 40%(47K$-your 23K$)~24K$ on your 120K$ bill. believe it or not.

Any other businesses that priced and billed like a hospital/ insurance company would end up in Federal Prisons.

Third party payers and the Federal laws & regulations(medicare & cade) have so perverted the health care businesses it is like Alice in Wonderland on LSD. crazy Squared.

My mom had an accident April 12, and broke her left hip and left wrist. She's doing fine now, got her cast off her arm this past week, and she walks anywhere she wants to now.

Keep your head up ! :thumbsup: We'll be praying for your speedy recovery.

Wow that sounds like you've been through hell . Good luck with your recovery . I've had major back surgery and know exactly how you feel when you get those god awful muscle cramps . When I feel them coming on I try to drink tonic water, has quinine in it and sometimes helps lesson the cramps . I just heard athletes take a tspn of mustard but haven't tried that yet .
