My BIL recently had to have his appendix removed. No health insurance and certainly no money to pay for that. State funding stepped in to help finance it into payments and get some of the price knocked off.
I don't even want to see what my bills are going to be. A person could stay a night in a 5 star hotel for a lot less and at least have a halfway comfortable bed.
As for the food...I don't suggest eating hospital food at all, I doubt it's even edible. The stuff I was being brought wouldn't have been good for me at all - too much dairy.
If you're still on Cigna, good luck. They've always dragged their feet a little over the large bills we've sent their way.
