I had to go to the ER about 2 1/2 weeks ago with a lasceration on my knee from falling. It was split wide open and looked like it needed stitches. They initially told me it would be $373.00 base price and could vary. So i ended up staying all day and all they really did was give me caprisun, they cleaned it out with some sterile water and I got a tetnis shot .
THey did'nt want to put stitches in because they did'nt know if itwas infected. THey told me to come back after 2-3 days and get the stitches put in. After a few days the cut looked like it was healing well on its own so I did'nt go back (THANK GOD)!!!
Well about a week ago I got a bill from them for $570.00 and I was fine with that. But now I just got another bill from the ER for $370.00. I called and they said that they are seperate from the hospital and there are different charges.
OMG!!! I"M SCREWEd! I already have 4500 dollars in credit card debt and now this!!! WTF!!!!
