    I received an estimate on the total cost of my surgery and hospital stay yesterday as a part of my insurance approval.

      My surgery ran the insurance company around $350,000.00. That was in 2015.

      These amounts are a joke and it's only getting worse. It's a game that the providers play with the payors. Charge twice as much as it should be so that when the amount gets cut in half then they got what they wanted in the first place. It's a for real crisis. But nobody wants to look at it.

      I paid off 3 surgeries and two rounds of radiation monthly. This was between 2011 and 2015. The last of 2015 was the beginning of chem and 3 stays in the hospital. They had changed their payment time and everything had to be paid in 24 months. The medicine alone for one treatment was over $100,00.00. I had 6. I called the billing department and told them there was no way I could do that. I reminded them of the fact that I had paid off three cancers already, but I just could not do this. They sent me a form asking only for the members of our household and their income. I returned it. Not only did they cancel the entire cancer cost, but did not charge me for another thing for the next year. I am truly blessed

      For as long as I can remember, we have had pork and sauerkraut for dinner. So, that is just what I am going to have on New Year's day.
