I Think “Shock” Describes It, Almost

At BoingBoing, an artist’s rendering of what it was like to open the $67,373.81 hospital bill for her thyroid cancer surgery. (And please note, that figure is what she owes after the $28,874.49 “uninsured discount.” Wanna guess what country she lives in!??!)

Holy shit, I didn’t know Laura Park had cancer. I used to read her stuff all the time. I’ll have to order a book of hers or something when I get home, or see if she’ll be at SPX.

Mine would be shock, then hysterical laughter, then tears.

Been there, unfortunately.

Our “healthcare system” is disgraceful and barbaric. Land of the free to lose everything because you got sick.

There was a really great and hilarious radio story (on This American Life, I think) about a guy who had uninsured emergency appendix surgery.

I have bookmarked it and I am looking forward to reading new articles.
