Quote from: lwillisjr on March 02, 2010, 09:46:31 PMI can share my experience. But keep in mind that I as fortunate to have medical coverage. Even though Levine was a 3 hour drive away, he was still listed as an "in network" doctor for my plan. Having said that, I've never understood what appears to me to be unbelievable medical costs. I don't blame Levine or the hospital, it is the system.My surgery was outpatient surgery, and I was actually in the OR about 1.5 hours. When I received the insurance statement, to total bill was $27K. But then there is always a writeoff due to agreed "usual and customary" charges between the insurance company and the medical provider. The write off brought it down to around $20k. Insurance covered all of this except for about $1200 which I paid out of pocket.Les
