we had a friend that had an accident at the lake and they charged him 1200.00 for the ambulance 18,000.00 for life flight and well over 80,000.00 for other fees and you know what was wrong? He had a dislocated hip. He said while he was lying on the beach in pain all that was going through his mind was all the beaver shots he was getting now that's priceless.

The really sad thing is that the doctors have to charge so much because of malpractice lawsuits and insurance companies negotiating down payments.

Oh, and thank for the beaver!

How about $2400 form Zio's on Bay Area Blvd to Clear Lake Hospital. That's less than a mile. I know how you feel.

My life flight in March was 9800.00 before insurance and all of the stuff they did at the hospital was over 6000.00. All that was wrong was post concussive syndrome (I couldn't and still cant remember the wreck) and a small scratch on my knee. But I am still happy they were safe rather than sorry cause of the head trauma. If no head trauma and just something like a broke leg happens Ill limp to the hospital next time.:laughing6

the only thing good about the ambulance is that you get seen quicker.

I was told 2-3 hours twice at the ER. So I just scheduled the next day with my orthopedic surgeon, went home, and self medicated myself.

sorry to hear about your first bill...i need to dig up the end total from my surgeries...

I only charge $300 for the ride to the hospital for anyone who is not interested in taking the ambulance.

Just don't ask if I know any paramedic or emergency procedures. I am just a driver.:laughing6

and for another $300, I'll ride along and keep asking you how many fingers I'm holding up. Unless your unconcious of course. Then I'll just pick your pockets.

you would be surprised. Sometimes medical bills show what is would be if you did not have insurance and what your insurance got charged. And majority of the time they charge your insurance company almost double what they would be charging you out of your pocket.

There is a lot more to that story if it is remotely true. My bet is if he said that, they asked if he wanted to go to the hospital in the helicopter, and if he was mentally able, they let him make that decision. Even a medic wouldn't jeopardize their certifications for someone like that, let alone a whole crew on a medivac.

Another common misconception. If you are not triaged to as a more serious patient, they'll let you sit in the waiting room just like a person who came in their personal vehicles. ESPECIALLY at Ben Taub and most other Houston hospitals.

Emergency rooms are bound by certain rules, and similarly, they base who gets seen first not by who arrives first or by what mode of transportation, but by who is more seriously medically in need.

Don't ever think that just because you go by ambulance that you will be seen sooner. You'll sit for just as many hours as someone who goes by their car.

The accident happened 9/4/06. My broken leg will just now be healed up in about 5 - 8 more weeks....I would have been healed up by now but the rod in my leg caused me to have an infection...Therefore they had to remove the infected rod ( another surgery $6,780.00 ) and put a new rod in my leg...

Thank I still got my leg, when I first got to the hospital my leg was SO bad they were thinking about ampuetaing it from the knee down....
