Doctor's aren't particularly good people anyway. Btw, what do you have?
This past January I swallowed like a moron, a very VERY large chicken bone that cost me about $10,000 to diagnose. Of that, I paid $2500 but now my insurance will cover 100% till 100,000 for the rest of the year. Which is not a ton but I'm still young. $8000 of that cost was a emergency room visit where I was in pain but went because there was some suggestion I was bleeding internally and I was living alone and it was 10pm.
