Some readers will recall that last February I wrote about an ER visit at a leading East Coast US hospital. I'm back in the US now for a short trip and have received a collection agency bill for $200 USD for fees related to the ER visit. Seems the hospital mistakenly sent the bill to my mother's address and not to the Argentine insurer's representative in Canada. All other fees were paid by the insurer in Argentina. In speaking to the insurance company representative in Canada I discovered that the fee for the ER visit (over 6 hour wait to be seen) which included an ultrasound was over $2,900 USD! Need I say that I find that disgusting?
