Mason got a clean bill of health from the surgeon. Doesn't want to see him back for 3 months unless we have issues. We had already gotten the bill from the surgeon and from the anesthesiologist, finally got the bill from the hospital itself.... $16,600. Yikes!!! The next day I checked our insurance company's website. The in-network discount was $15,100, bringing the total down to $1500, we owe less than $300 of that out of our pocket. I am no math wise but can figure out that is more than a 90% discount. Makes me wonder who has to suffer and pay the full price. Thankful I have insurance.
