Just looked at the hospital bill we got that covers all the things that have happened since Martha first got diagnosed w/ Melanoma (die cancer, die!) this past September...
So, this covers two surgeries, several 'minor procedures', imaging, visits, etc.:
|Total hospital charges||$28,655.49|
|Adjustments to date||$-22,091.34|
|Amount pending from insurance||$229.85|
|Already paid by insurance||$-6,356.30|
|Already paid by patient||$0.00|
|Amount [we] owe now||$50.00|
Wow! I'm not about to get into the current healthcare reform stuff (I'm not intellectually equipped to do so) ... but, wow, thank God for a job, a job that's a good job, and a job that provides insurance.
