Holy Moly!!!! You guys in the UK and Canada in spite of all the down sides really cant complain. Just for the pharmacy ,recovery room,labs,anesthesia and cardiology the hospital billed almost $80,000 or 55,200 English Pounds. Of course the hospital does their adjustments and the insurance company pays their adjusted portion. Doesn't anybody think this is totally outrageous? Too bad we couldn't negotiate with them and say "hey, we want to pay cash where is our discount ?" I feel I'm fortunate that when all said and done I'll pay under $500 (345 Pounds) for mine. Was it worth it ? YES!! But what about those over here who need it but are looking at huge medical copay's so they just put it off. Ok, I'm officially off my soap box.
