  •  The ambulance bill is criminal (4+ / 0-)

    I was in a serious bike crash (I woke up in the ER being put back together) and my ambulance bill was roughly $500. Of course that was because it was from the county fire and rescue. Insurance covered 90%.

    And since I have good employer provided insurance the ER bill was a flat $105. I know I'm lucky. Heck, my biggest cost was to replace the bike.

    Certainly from our standpoint, this gives us a sense of momentum -- when the United States has accolades tossed its way, rather than shoes. - PJ Crowley
