The “Patients’ Costs Skyrocket; Specialists’ Incomes Soar” article revealed some of the most outlandish and asinine medical costs i have ever heard. It shows a huge disparity from the costs of medical care in the united states verses the rest of the world. I personally have had to deal with outrageously high medical bills for surgeries. I had my foot ran over by a 22 ton boom lift a couple years back. Though my medical bills were covered for the cost seamed abnormally high. I had two surgeries one in which consisted of removing one of my toes and cutting off a large amount of dead tissue the other consisted of putting in 3 metal plates and 13 screws into my foot. The medical bill for both proceeders including hospital costs were roughly 250 thousand dollars. Today i am still fighting over medical bills and where they should be allocated.
