It's no secret that the American healthcare system is a complete joke.
And patients get charged WAY too much for the services they receive, even with insurance!
So we wanna know about a time you were charged a ridiculous price for healthcare.
I'll go first! A couple months ago, I got a physical, a well-woman exam, and a flu shot — nothing special. My doctor's office told me preventative stuff was covered by insurance and would be free. Lo and behold, I recently got a bill in the mail for $400!!!
Perhaps you performed the absolute miracle of childbirth, just to get an outrageous bill for way more than you could afford.
Or maybe you got a surgery you needed, and the bill was so shockingly high that you'll be paying it off for YEARS.
Whatever it is, we wanna hear it! Tell us about a stupidly high medical bill you received for a chance to be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post!
