Yeah, we just had a baby 6 months ago.
Delivery= $ 2975.00
Hospital Room(1 night)= $3689.26
Now that I think about it, I should have rented a room at the Hilton in downtown Chicago (pleasure suite=$500.00 to $1000.00 a night), and had the
baby there. Would have saved a couple grand.
Our deductible is $1000.00 (Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO), then 90/10. What a rip-off. I still didn't pay the deductible and my 10% share.
That's one of the major reasons I miss living in Germany. I remember paying a hell of a lot of taxes, but guess what? I NEVER once had a medical
bill. We never had to worry about deductibles, or if our doctor is in the "network". I would gladly have more taxes taken from me, if I knew I would
never receive a medical bill again.
