Breaking my ribs and puncturing my lung cost me like $4,000 because I had to stay overnight for three days and get an IV and morphine.
Like WITH health insurance which means you pay them every month regardless and then if something happens they cover some of it for you so you don’t have to pay the full amount at once. Like without insurance it would have been like probably $10,000 or something fucking insane, I’m not entirely sure, but all I know is that without insurance, I would have been doomed.
Like literally just walking into a hospital and being like “yo I am here” is going to cost you like a paycheck’s worth of money.
And fucking forget like long term treatment or like fucking SURGERY like if you like, say, had cancer, and needed to go through chemo, you would go bankrupt. Like you would go bankrupt trying to prevent yourself from fucking DYING.
No matter what it is you have to pay thousands upon thousands upon thousands of dollars.
And they don’t give a fuck if you don’t have it.
They will find a way to take it from you while you lie incapacitated in a hospital bed hooked up to machines.
This is fucking horrible.
