  1. HEALTHLEADERS FACT FILE

    I have just figured out what I will owe from the heart cath I had in Jan, after the insurance has paid its share. The figure for this is app. $940, ouch, but that is only 1/10th of the bill.
    The ablation from Feb has been only partly finished by my insurance so far and I'm waiting to see what I will owe the cost in full(so far) is $38,000 and that is with no guarentee that he was able to fix it totally. Where the site was found is near an artery and had to be only partly done, so it wouldn't creat a blockage.
    I am getting on the web site of my insurance today to see what is going on with those charges. Where is a sugar daddy when I need one? deb
