My husband had a knee replacement at FirstHealth in October 2012. He is a healthy 68-year-old man, and there were no complications.
The bill for the two days was more than $37,000, not including the surgeon’s fee or follow-up physical therapy.
The question is, why?
Why do we not question these astronomical bills? Is it because Medicare cheerfully pays?
There is something very wrong with this picture.
