    Just read an article in the Jackson MS paper; a guy got bit by a rattlesnake and spent 4 days in the Hospital; total cost just under $500000! That is right half a million for a snake bite! His insurance paid and settled the bill and it cost him $6000. That a hospital can get away with this makes me sick but I don't think I can afford it!

    Indeed amazing. A couple of weeks ago an uninsured relative had a stroke. The hospital bill was about $50k. I thought that was a lot. Not sure how the stroke bill will get settled.
