Healthcare in the US

I just had to share this . . . I opened the mail today and it was a bill from the hospital for my PET scan. It had not yet been turned into insurance. Guess what the total was . . . . . $16,722.00!!! Can you believe that?!?! It makes me wonder if the test is really that expensive to give or is it the "system" that makes it cost that much? It's really sad how expensive it is to be sick these days. I know one chemo session is $6000 and one CT scan is $3000. I'm not sure how I feel about the whole health insurance reform going on right now with the government. But I do know something needs to be done and soon! It truly is a crisis!

Isn't it incredible? You're right- no matter where you stand on the issues, something has to be done.

Last night, at our Relay for Life event, we lit a luminary in your honor. :)
