    Pay 10 bucks a month. Or.. they'll sell the note to a creditor and then you can offer a payoff of 25 percent, becuase most likely, they sold it for 10 percent.

    my mom was in ER and then admitted overnight for tests. Her total was $13,000.
    she didn't pay anything. medicare and supp. ins. took care of all of it.

    but negotiate on that bill. like another said, call and see what you can get off and see how they will help you handle it.

    hope you are feeling better. relax tho, everyone gets slapped with nasty bills. horrible as they are they sure happen. don't get too upset.

    unexpected bills stink. no one enjoys them from the AC unit that dies and costs $4-5K to replace to the medical bill.
    thing about bills...I would rather pay a med bill that saved me vs. another cruddy bill LOL

    you know what I mean

    we can't plan life and bills. will never happen.

    Re: got a bill fur $1,959.35 for ....

    Sorry to read of your health problems.

    I have made several trips to ER over the last 20+ years. Each time I thought I might be dying but no cause was discovered.

    My last ER adventure was back in about 2003. They kept me in the hospital 6 days for observation and tests. The bill was around $12,000 as I recall. My insurance paid the whole shot but while waiting for them to pay the hospital kept the heavy on us 24/7. We constantly received phone calls and letters about our bill.

    Why the outrageous cost today?

    1. High hospital personal wages. In a medium sized hospital ER it would be nothing to cost $1500+ an hour for all associated with it (several doctors, RNs, Lab Techs, etc.).
    2. Hospital insurance costs (unbelievable)

    Hospitals in America are not cheap. On the other hand, neither is death. And one never knows when a symptom is something potentially fatal.

    It's hard to believe but we still have some of the best medical care in the world (we're losing it fast). Soon America will be into socialized medicine (much more so than today) and health care will be rationed and the weaker elements of society eliminated via lack of timely care. One who needs a by-pass in Canada may have to wait months to receive it. Here that one would be well into recovery by that time.

    The cost is steep but if the personal is quality, $2000 for several hours in ER isn't that bad.

    Re: got a bill fur $1,959.35 for ....

    Hope your well , normally i go to the VA hospital where iam covered i have CHF an many heart operations 3 Stent implants but once i was rushed to the local hospital because the VA is 65 miles away i stayed for 22 hours and then released a week later i received a bill for just over $3000.00 i requested a complete itemized bill for my 22 hour stay in the ccr , did you know they charged me $3.00 4 times for each baby aspirin 80mg $12.00 for 4 aspirin,s !! things are way out of hand today and the main reason doctors charge so much is the insurance premium,s they have to pay 2/3 of a doctors salary and why ? MALPRACTICE LAW SUITS !!!! even if the doctor has a unblemished record . anyway just do what most on here said pay the hospital $10.00 a month and there is nothing they can do but except it . Get well Jim

    Having lived under a properly functioning social health care system that was AMAZING, I can only pray that someday the US will wake up and stop listening to their greedy politicians and the lobbyists who feed them.
