Now I don't know if your health plan will fix things like this or not. I surely hope so.
Friend of ours owns a small store selling imported specialty items after a career in retail in her home country. She has no health insurance.
Last week she felt very ill and went to the nearest hospital. Turns out she had acute appendicitus and nearly died.
A surgeon performed the operation.
The hospital discharged her after two hours in the operating room and no recovery time and is now suing her for $60,000.
Makes ya wanna puke.
