Almost Like Winning the Lottery

June 7, 2008

This morning when I checked the mail, a great surprise was in there. It was a new statement from the hospital. We did get a discount from them on the appendectomy and it was about a $20,000 discount (about 80% of the total hospital bill was discounted). We still have bills from other providers to deal with, but this was the largest by far.

    That’s terrific! Was this an insurance write-off, or do you have the only hospital with a conscience that won’t steamroll a cash customer??

    Maybe it’s your frequent visitor status that qualified you! LOL Sorry! that was probably not in good taste!

    Adriana-It really is, especially considering our new hospital bill for the finger injury.

    Lisa-We don’t have medical insurance (we are self-employed, so it’s so pricey). Our hospital has a discount program available to those without insurance and apparently we quailfied for a discount.

    Haha! I wish we got a frequent visitor discount. Maybe like a punch card at the coffee place. 11th visit is free!

    Oh that is fantastic. I am so happy for you guys. I bet that takes a load off your minds even with having the other bills, but wow, what a difference.
