Clean-up in aisle $8,778

My emergency room bill from the auto accident showed up in the mail.


This reminds me of when I tell my husband after a visit to Target, "I swear I was in there for a just a quick moment and only bought three things."


I love how the IV costs $5.80.  What a bargain.

O my... we got one of these after last year's Thanksgiving. I'd hate to think what hospital bills would be like without insurance.

Holy, GEESH! I think the IV set you over the budget though. . .(awkward giggle). . .

The accident wasn't your fault, so this isn't your responsibility... right?!

Yes, Target :) one day we spent $75 on things to clean-up [bathroom cleaner, diapers, wipes, toilet paper...].
Now the ER bill, that is ridiculous. Apparently someone is pocketing some change.

I had my car broken into last night and had a similar experience at the dealership when they had me sign off on a $4200 work order to have the ragtop replaced.

WOW!!! That makes me worry about my little accident this summer...I don't even want to know how much the bill was/is...and I am still crossing my fingers that insurance is taking care of it...let's pray!

I had my gall bladder removed early this year, and for a 6 hour total time spend in hospital, the bill was $14,500!! We were a little shell shocked when the bill came.

Oh my! That is a bargain for an iv.

BTW...I posted the recipe today for the cake I posted yesterday.

Sara said...

the BIG difference is that at Target there would have been a sale & you could have probably gotten the IV for free seeing as you spent $7000 in the radiology aisle!

And now I love you even more for using one of my all time favorite phrases...holy shnikeys!

Oh My Dear God!

I never see these are our Canadian Health Insurance covers stuff like this.

I think I just had a total wake-up call!
