Why is Medical Care So Expensive in the US?

Why is Medical Care So Expensive in the US? | Medical Tourism News | Scoop.it

In January, a 20-year-old posted his $55,000 hospital bill for an appendectomy at a hospital in Sacramento, California on Reddit with this comment: “I never truly understood how much healthcare in the US costs until I got appendicitis in October. I’m a 20 year-old guy. Thought other people should see this to get a real idea of how much an unpreventable illness costs in the US”.

 

What followed was a firestorm of response with 10,729 comments posted to date. Even with coverage through his father’s insurance policy, this young man was saddled with over $11,000 in debt that will take him years to repay.

Monica Rix Paxson's insight:
