The rest of the story for the guy who was charged $3,270 says "Hospital officials at Jackson told the Miami Herald that, based on his insurance, Azcue would only be responsible for $1,400 of that bill, but Azcue said he heard from his insurer that he would also have to provide additional documentation: three years of medical records to prove that the flu he got didnít relate to a preexisting condition" Thats only common sense. And the guy who recieved a bill for $983 is par for an emergency room visit for anything. And if you don't have any insurance at all, well, you deserve to pay for everything.
I'm so glad I don't live in the USA. Even your attempts at putting a positive spin on this make the situation look terrible to me. $1000 to go to the emergency room? That's insane.
