I just got the bill from the hospital — you know, the one where I had my baby awhile back. I was there for about 67 hours.
My bill (before insurance) was $10,650.50. Oh man. Fortunately, with insurance, my financial obligation is just $280, or about 2 percent of the total cost.
Out of curiosity, I requested an itemized bill to see how it all breaks down. Maybe they’ll send one to me.
I believe this figure includes all of my prenatal care and 6 ultrasounds.
I wonder what an epidural would have cost. Or a c-section. Yowza.
Thank God for our health insurance!
