    I had a ridiculous $5500 bill for a few stitches — just went to the closest place when I was traveling. I paid $1100 of it — about $110/stitch. Never heard boo from my insurance, assume they paid the rest without looking twice at it.

    I accompanied my wife when she needed an ultrasound breast exam. Upon check-in they noticed our unmet $6k deductible and told us they’d give us 75% discount IF WE DIDN’T use our insurance but she needed to know prior to paperwork processing. Insurance rate was $975. We paid less than $250 with ‘self pay’. So we didn’t even utilize the insurance that we pay for every two weeks. What’s really going on here?
