After the 2nd week I didn’t get many visitors as no one wanted to pay for the parking, lol. I must have spent hundreds at the 2nd floor Timmies but the hospital stay didn’t cost a cent of course. Edit: London Health Science Center in London, Ontario Canada, Victoria Hospital. I drove by the hospital a few days ago and I am currently waiting for a $1000 bill. It’s just the parking. They didn’t have to pay a thing for the care. Just the parking. Some Scandinavian countries probably got you beat with a reimbursement for a taxi ride but not bad. Nice! I pay $1600 USD monthly for my families crappy health insurance. My son needed to go to the e.r. we spent 3 hours there and only received some basic over the counter meds. Just got the bill and it’s $2,400. My Chicago tolls cost more than this I cut my finger with a chef’s knife while cutting onions. After waiting for 4 hours I finally got taken care of, $250 for the superglue and $40 for 2 Tylenol. Want to guess what country? Next time I saved $285 by supergluing the cut myself. I should stay away from cutting onions four… hours? This is funny but for real a four day stay in the hospital has the potential to completely destroy the average American’s entire financial future Hope your father is doing better, OP. I spent 3 weeks in a hospital bed with a bad infection, then had a nurse visiting me 4 times a week while I was recovering at home for another month. I had hospital equipment provided for me at home to assist in recovery as well with supplies that were brought to me with each visit. I didn’t get charged anything. In fact, I didn’t even get a receipt for anything. Canadian as well. Everyone jokes. But on a serious note, I had to have a spinal fusion right at the start of Covid. And I was there for 6 days including surgery. The insurance company sent me a bill for $84,000. After deductibles and all that, with my crappy plan, I still had a bill upwards of $10,000, plus what I pay weekly for my health insurance plan. I would love to have paid only $12 a day for parking. This makes me want to cry. I will be paying off my surgery for years to come too. All to be able to live somewhat pain-free and be able to walk again. I guess it’s worth it in the long run. But short term, it sucks. Edit: [X-RAY PROOF OF MY SPINAL FUSION](https://ibb.co/v3QjkMk) Literally me right now, not shitting you: *Looks at $1200 cancer screening test bill to see if I have what my dad died of knowing this is not categorized as ‘preventative care’* That would be the charge per second here in the US. Must be nice not having to choose between going into crippling debt or letting someone die. Must be real nice. Hello from a Victorian nurse! hope your dad is ok! Australia here. 7 days in the stroke ward. Total cost: $80 in parking fees. It’s almost worth living in a communist hellhole. Anyway, off to go hitch a ride on a transport wagon to get to Great Leader Square so that I can queue for toilet paper before the mandatory Compliance Radio hour in 11am. Yeah, well, can you buy a gun even if you’re blind?! Didn’t think so, commie! A Uncle of mine spent 2 days in Hospital after having his Colon removed and cancer. Bill..$0. Thank You Canada! Every time my wife and I leave Dana F, I say the same thing… we just went through a tough scan, appt, update … they should give you a coffee or cupcake or flower….no. They give you a partially paid parking pass. Then we cry on the ride home. It’s get more normal each time. Fuck cancer hard. See…a muffin would help. Canada baby. Oh and the rest of the civilized world. Vancouver Canada 4 days in ICU and 6 more in hospital. No bill, no paperwork of any kind. Its pretty awesome. I had brain surgery done to remove a tumor in downtown Toronto. My team was an international team of highly trained doctors, including the main surgeon who works with the NFL, NBA and NHL. I had Cranioplasty, craniotomy, total resection of the tumor, duramesh put in, two MRI’s, Two CT with contrast and four days in the ICB recovering. I awoke with no issues, could speak, move, talk and was 15 on the GSC because of how talented my surgery team was. I was in a lot of pain, but I had a nurse with me 24/7. It cost me $0. The only thing I did not get was a private room, which was about $10,000. So I was in a shared room with two nurses and four people. When I got a quote from John Hopkins, they estimated it would be $250,000 not including travel and the surgeon said he doubted he could get the entire tumor because it was near the Sylvain Fissure. The hospital I was in in Toronto didn’t look as nice as some in America, but the quality of care was amazing. edit: My surgeon has almost 600 published research papers and over 19,000 citations. I would not have been able to even be seen by someone that skilled in most other countries around the world. I used to complain about long hospital waits and appointments in Canada However, when I see stuff like this, it reminds me of why I should be greatful. Now I just see it as someone who needs the hospital resource more than I do, and sharing it results in benefit for all. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
