I realize that alot of this cost is for the people who dont pay or dont have insurance. But damn, does a doctor really need to make $15,ooo for a 2hr operation...?

We do need some typeof medical overhaul. Obamas plan is not it, but damn!

Training. Do you what a doctor to only make $30,000/year? I don't. I'd rather they be paid comfortably. They are highly skilled in what they do. Malpractice insurance and the non-insured take a huge chunk of pay.

My wife spent two days in the hospital for a C-section for a healthy boy, and the cost was $20,000.

When I was born, my mom had Blue Cross Blue Shield, one of the best insurance companies you can have. She also works for the hospital where I was born, so she got a discount.

The insurance the hospital carries now is absolutely horrendous. No way would I ever even think about having a kid with their insurance.

I can't remember if that's what my mom had when I had open heart surgery, but she only paid $75 for it, lol.

I just got a bill from the hospital for $1800. Nothing like twenty g's, but I was only there for 20 minutes. Just waiting to hear if my insurance covered some of it or not.

Probably, most other health insurance companies absolutely suck and have ridiculously high co-pays and deductibles. But you can't blame them, the uninsured population really screwed things over for everybody.
