Man gets treated in hospital for infected knee – gets a bill for $618,967.78

On Reddit, u/xplodingboy07 said he got a nasty knee infection and had to spend a month in the hospital. He posted a photo of the bill, which was for $618,967.78.

That’s $20,000 a day. And here I was thinking that the $106,911.93 bill my elderly relative got for spending 8 days in the hospital after his partial denture got stuck in his throat was excessive. Turns out it was a bargain at just $13,000 a day.

Over 500,000 U.S. families go bankrupt from medical bills every year.
