04 Nov health care crisis
Remember when Miles cut his chin and I took him to Urgent Care? The doctor washed the cut and glued it shut. Easy peasy. We spent maybe 5 minutes in the doc’s care.
The bill came today. Anyone else see a problem here?
I’m thankful for group health insurance (something we didn’t have access to when both Kris and I were self-employed). We paid $20 coinsurance for the visit. But how is it okay for the doctor to bill $1,040 for gluing a cut? Am I missing something? Do they have to bill that much in order to get the $206 they deserve from the insurance company?
More importantly….if we didn’t have insurance, would they have billed us $1,040?
