Default Omg...$61,625.00

That's the bill I just received for my shoulder surgery (rotator cuff) performed on November 30th. No over night stay. I have decent insurance so I should survive this--in fact, I paid a sum the morning of, which I was told amounted to my share of the bill after insurance approval. Based on what I paid, I did not expect the actual bill to be any where near that high. I hope the hospital doesn't expect to come back to me for additional sums because I've got nothing left..... That just seems way too high.

Sounds about right. Had same surgery two years ago. Covered by insurance and out of pocket was only a small fraction. It's the physical therapy limits on your insurance that could be an issue. If you don't do the work, it's never right....

I had my other shoulder done two years ago. way worse--required a number of screws and there were three tears--two all the way through. I did the PT on my own--but stuck to it. I still have some issues but no more than other people i know who went through months of PT at reputable places. i'm thinking of meeting with a therapist this time to get some access to a few devices that should help my last shoulder get a bit more strength--otherwise, i'm probably doing most of the therapy on my own again....

That is one of the things that pisses me off. What the hospital bills people with no insurance is the full rate, driving many uninsured into bankruptcy. But those with insurance and therefore the ability to pay, pay no where near that amount, and I'll bet only 1/3 of that amount is the contracted amount that insurance pays.

Spend a week in the hospital and my bill was $265,000 dollars.

(insurance covered it but they only paid $72,000. Different prices for different folks.)

But we have the best healthcare in the world!!!!
