  •  At the time I was considering bankruptcy (0+ / 0-)

    Without a doubt had the hospital not given me charity care I would have gone ahead and declared bankruptcy in which case they wouldn't have received a dime from me.

    Non-profit hospitals are required to provide a certain percentage of their services as charity care in order to qualify for their favorable tax status.

    So I got something and they got something.

    Do you have a problem with that?

    The only trouble with retirement is...I never get a day off!

    •  They incurred costs that will be paid by someone. (0+ / 0-)

      It would not have been you in either case.

      No, in the micro sense, I have no problem with it. In the macro sense, it's unsustainable.
