Modern Art?

I just got home and got the mail. There was a bill from the MRI facility for the photo shoot of my suspicious boobs.

$1,272.11

Ouch.

I was kind of hoping they’d forget to send the bill. You know. As a congratulatory gesture.

You’d think that at a little over $600 a breast that they’d at least send along my MRI film so I could have the film matted and framed. Heck I’d be willing to have the tech autograph them. Maybe I could sell the film on eBay?

And yep. We have “good” health insurance. I just hadn’t met my deductible yet. That pretty much did it. At least my biopsy was fully covered, thank goodness.

    Holy mammary glands, Batman! The best part is that if insurance HAD covered it, they’d probably have paid less than half of that amount.

    So I just really analyzed the bill. Our health insurance paid for a small portion. The original bill was $1,835!!!!

    OUCH.

    Seriously. This makes me wonder how people make it without health insurance.

    Day-um.

    Gulp. That’s amazing! Those of us with insurance are certainly lucky. It’s hard to fathom the amounts of money that medical procedures cost. But I guess it’s a small price to pay in the grand scheme or making sure you’re healthy!
