  •  Yup, I had a bill for $6,666 from a hospital just (1+ / 0-)

    bought by the Yale New Haven system mentioned in this article.

    My insurer negotiated it to $2,889, but I still think that's ridiculous -- it was for a a maybe half hour outpatient surgery.

    Just by calling and asking, I got a 25% discount if paid within 30 days.

    I'm sure if I wanted to waste more time and energy by forcing them to audit the bill, I could have gotten that 25% discount off a lower amount.

    This just goes to show -- they truly throw every charge at the wall, and hope they will all stick.
