Scandalous medical costs continued

A friend of mine had a baby a couple of months ago. Due to some complications the baby was transferred to Duke in Chapel Hill and spent 10 days in the NICU. The bill was $57,000. My friend had to pay $700 of this bill and the rest was covered by insurance.

Another friend had a baby prematurely and the baby spent quite a few weeks in hospital locally. The bill was $60,000 of which my friend paid $300.

No wonder the insurance premiums are so high!
