I’m an RN and I have NO IDEA how much procedures and stuff costs. Found out that one simple CT scan will run you about $900. (Son had one in the ER.) We are usually all pretty healthy here and I have a pretty good idea of how much doctor visits and stuff will cost, but the couple of times we had to use the ER we should have taken bets on the total… Inpatient stuff must be horrid, knocking on wood nobody uses that here!
Off to read the article… perhaps some competition would be good for the rest of us.
