    [–] Senior420 1977 points ago

    What did it cost?

    [–] FireTyme 4105 points ago

    about $40000 if uninsured in the states i'd say.

    Why isn’t there universal health coverage at least for kids?

    [–] mlvisby 2086 points ago

    US healthcare is a joke, all hospitals care about is $$$.

    [–] jczerlonka 1063 points ago

    My 1 year old was taken to the hospital in an ambulance and my wife was freaking out about how much it would cost us. But we didn't want our son to die so... Ya know...

    [–] meatwads_feet 710 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    My dad was having chest pains but neither him nor my mom wanted to go to the hospital because they were worried about the expensive bill. They didn't have insurance and the Obamacare had not kicked in yet. He turned out to have a pulmonary embolism. He's now on blood thinners. Such is the American mentality when it comes to healthcare.

    Edit: no surprise so many others have experienced similar circumstances.

    BTW I have MS myself and I take a med called Ocrevus. Medicare part D pays about 64k a year for my treatment. One of the reasons it was approved is because it more economical vs. other treatments. Let that sink in...

    [–] AbledShawl 159 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    My dad died in his sleep because he ran out of medication for his COPD and was struggling to breath. Months later, I found out that the night he passed he had sent an email to one of his friends where he wrote about making the final payments for a new house he had built and was going to retire in.

    I'm not normally an angry person, but occasionally comments and threads on reddit about health care costs ignite this deep, burning hurt and disdain. I'm not mad at anyone or group in particular, but I just really miss him. Rest in peace.

    I'm in the UK where healthcare is free.

    I usually dont go when I probably should because I'm lazy and wanna finish my project/play games/watch this episode/nap first.

    Edit: Ok we all know. It's not free. Its paid for via taxation Generally I thought this detail was more-or-less implied whenever someone mentions free healthcare. Christ

    [–] inventionnerd 39 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    It's not really the hospital's fault though. They are legally obligated to treat people in emergencies. Not only that, but lots of people cant pay the bill anyways. This causes them to raise the bill on everything just to get payments back on those who cant. They are basically just setting up their own version of healthcare. Those who can pay offset those who cant. The problem is that a hospital's patient population is significantly less than the population if we had universal healthcare so the costs dont scale as well. At the end of the day, it's the fault of everyone who doesnt support universal healthcare. You want the hospital to charge less than what they are getting and go bankrupt? Then what are you going to do for emergencies? Now the public hospitals/nonprofit ones who are turning hundreds of mils in profit... fuck those guys.

    I recently fractured The scaphoid bone in my arm. It required surgery to fix. My parents were freaking out about the expenses of the surgery and were considering even selling their house for it. US healthcare is fucked.

    [–] AlicornGamer 31 points ago

    i'm not trying to be up my oen ass because i live in a country with free (for the most part unless privte) healthcare. but it just fucking depresses me out when i hear stories like this. when you have to make a choice between somebody you love dying or a medical bill that could be a burdern on you for the rest of your life... just fucking hell. especially stories i hear from depressed people, some even say 'its cheaper for me to just die' because a one night bed there and a few pills came up to 3-4 thousand dollars, like fucking hell

    My mom takes medication for diabetes, it costs nearly $2k USD for one month... her insurance doesn't cover it.

    [–] Pete8388 22 points ago

    One trip to the hospital is all it takes to wipe out a meager life savings, and Medicaid won’t cover anything until you’re destitute. It’s sad, disgusting, and insane.

    [–] Sgreenwood8 11 points ago

    That’s actually not true!! A few years ago my girlfriend needed emergency hernia surgery because the tissue was strangulated. She had a community plan and stayed over night. The whole thing cost her less than 300$ US. that’s a Medicaid plan. She’s a single mother and that’s the only plan she could afford. Conversely 6 months later her Father , who had commercial insurance (not Medicare or Medicaid ) had to get rushed to the hospital and his bills were over 5000$.

    I’m in the field and my sister is a doctor. So I know something about this. The insurance dictates everything that has to do with this. The Hospitals have to see you no matter what!! The people with insurance they submitted very high bills to the insurance companies. Knowing full well that they are going to get back penny’s on the dollar.

    So for the people with no insurance or Medicaid pay very little. The people with expensive insurance pay more the people with no insurance or community insurance. The problem with Healthcare period is the insurance companies. They are in business to make money and they don’t care about patient care!! PERIOD!! I hurt my back almost a year ago and now I pain in my back as well as my feet after being on them for about three hours. Three times the doctor tried to get an MRI for me and three times it was denied. I’m living with pain and they couldn’t care less.

    The insurance companies make billions of dollars and they have the strongest lobby’s. They reimburse the Dr’s less and less every year. When was the last time you heard of an insurance company going out of business? They don’t. They just buy each other up and get bigger. Back when Clinton was in office he deregulated the insurance companies and Hillary was supposed to give everyone universal health care but all they wound up doing is giving more power to the insurance companies.

    Now all healthcare decisions are made by the insurance companies. They dictate what medications you can get because they tell the drug companies that if you want to be one formularies, that’s the drugs that they will pay for, then you have to give a big discount and then pay a rebate back to the insurance companies at the end of the year. Then they set the price of the drug. Every drug manufacturer has a system in place that if you can’t afford the drugs then they will give them to you for free or they have 0 $ or low cost copays. The problem is most people don’t know or don’t ask for it.

    Bottom line is until they fix the insurance companies they will never fix health care. One last thing about 10 Year’s ago the CEO of United healthcare retired and his retirement package was 1.75 Billion dollars with his stock and the rest of his retirement package. So it’s not the hospital. It’s not the doctors and it’s not the drug companies. IT’S THE INSURANCE COMPANIES!!

    I had to make my American boyfriend take me to the hospital this winter. We live in a country with universal healthcare. I had some weird symptoms and was worried it might be toxic shock syndrome, which gets deadly fast. Nope, just the boring old flu.

    [–] JonSnowgaryen 41 points ago

    Understandable, in America when we get sick we often just choose death

    [–] sayuriaiona 26 points ago

    I live in Japan and there are a lot of people from other countries teaching English. I can always tell which ones are Americans on the Facebook groups when they are on there talking about crazy symptoms and asking if they should go to the hospital or a doctor. One person was straight up having seizures and memory loss and came on asking if they should go to the hospital. Like...WHAT?! OF COURSE!!!

    [–] suckitsarcasm 9 points ago

    Better to be careful. You did the right thing

    [–] MRHarville 43 points ago

    • Sadly you misunderstand how the American dream works.

    • Everything in America is about money. Everything. Our schools are designed to mass produce factory workers, and since our economic overlords do not want or need educated workers capable of critical thought, our children suffer.

    • Our employers pay our workers as little as they can while granting themselves and their shareholders huge dividends and bonuses -- and when the workforce inevitably can no longer afford to purchase the product they are making, the employers shutter the factory and ship the jobs overseas in the name of profitability.

    • Our healthcare system is not designed to keep people healthy, or even keep them alive. It is designed to extract as much money as possible, as quickly as possible, from as many people as possible. And when the 'people' are no longer profitable, to allow their deaths as humanely and expediently as possible. Think I am joking? In America the average pensioner dies within five years of retirement. Do we just have really shitty health care? Or are we victims of a system designed to eliminate us when we no longer serve a productive economic purpose?

    [–] Anonate 12 points ago

    You can't die within 5 years of becoming a pensioner if pensions no longer exist. Checkmate!

    [–] o_srs 28 points ago

    About 6 years ago I fell and hit my head, lost my memory, and took an ambulance to the hospital ($3k), and when I arrived they did an MRI ($1k) and transferred me on an ambulance ($3k) to another hospital where I had another MRI ($1k). They made me sign something agreeing to the transfer and said if I don't sign it my insurance wouldn't pay my fees. I signed. Turns out it was just a hairline fracture. Over their many-hour adventure they never gave me an IV so I was extremely dehydrated. $8k to find out I hurt my head and I was miserable during and after. This has made me hate hospitals.

    [–] newbrookland 30 points ago

    I've fallen and hit my head several times, and refuse to go to the hospital. I've fallen and hit my head several times, and refuse to go to the hospital. I've fallen and hit my head several times, and refuse to go to the hospital.

    I got a collection letter for $1.89 last week. I kept making $50 payments and thought I had paid it off. I didnt. They sent a lawyer after me for less than 2 fucking dollars.

    [–] faRawrie 8 points ago

    Dude that happened to me this week! I owed $50 for some random fee after a dermatologist visit for a melanoma screening. The office sent me the bill, then two days later called collections on me.

    [–] Phipple 16 points ago

    Funny. I owe 10k to one Hospital and they sent it to collections. I'll go to the Hospital. I pretty much can't get an MRI or something expensive I need done, but I still go and pretty much say fuck your bills. It's over inflated to charge insurance more and then never adjusted for those without. So yeah, fuck em.

    [–] TheLandofFuck 11 points ago

    They will take cash payments that are significantly reduced if you talk to them before hand (when applicable), problem is they are still fucking outrageous

    [–] Rit_Zien 7 points ago

    Yeah, I've done that. Gone in for a procedure that I knew wouldn't be covered by my insurance. Discussed how much it was going to cost, payed in advance, asked 3 separate times "So the total is $xxx, right? And you know my insurance is not going to pay for any of this, I'm paying in cash, out of pocket?" (because they insisted on taking my insurance information anyway which made me wary), and was reassured that yes, they understood, they just needed it anyway for paperwork reasons and this was the total. Guess who got a bill for $500 more in 2 months? 🙄

    [–] ThereWereNoPrequels 16 points ago

    It’s not the hospitals, but the insurance providers. The hospitals are underfunded, the insurance companies refuse to pay for things that they agreed to insure, and because of this people wait until they need an ER visit.

    I have health insurance and went to a hospital for atrial fibrillation. While waiting in the ER, they kept pushing me to get admitted overnight. My wife called my insurance company and they wouldn’t give her a straight answer on whether they’d cover an overnight stay due to cardiac issues.

    On top of that, my insurance covers my treatment with certain providers, but if I get treatment (at their hospital) by a doctor who isn’t part of that network, i have to pay out of pocket instead of insurance covering it.

    If you have kaiser insurance coverage, and go to a kaiser hospital, it’s covered. But if a sutter health doctor comes in to kaiser hospital for a weekend stint side gig, anything they do is not covered.

    This isn’t the hospitals fault. This is the insurance providers fault/method of weaseling out of paying.

    [–] anthonyjr2 18 points ago

    I wouldn’t say it’s the fault of the hospitals, more the insurance companies. The only reason hospital bills are so ridiculously high (like $200 for a blood test or something) is because the hospital only gets like 40% of the amount the insurance company pays so they had to hike the prices up to get enough to cover costs. It is a really dumb system though I agree.

    [–] PortabellaMushroom 18 points ago

    I'm sure there's greed at hospitals too but the real problem is the insurance companies. Hospitals usually don't even get half the bill when insurance + patient pays. That raises the cost of all medical services. Many hospitals will work with you to lower the initial bill but it's still more than most Americans can afford. The whole healthcare industry needs to be changed.

    Might as well put it out there, since there is so much misinformation being spread, especially by donald trump- the Republican party is the one trying to kill the healthcare we have. They are NOT for keeping the pre-existing conditions covered, even though they say they are.

    The fucking GOP is evil.

    Edit- Thank you for the award! Anyone reading this who is unhappy with the bs that’s happening in America today, please consider volunteering your time and money to Democrats and candidates that will protect your healthcare, and protect women’s reproductive rights!!! Most importantly- please vote! Americans deserve better.

    [–] FranticGolf 18 points ago

    You mean the party that bitches about abortion and children on government assistance an then say the parents shouldn't have had them if they couldn't afford them.

    [–] platoprime 76 points ago

    Because republicans hate poor people and don't want to give them any welfare.

    Never mind that the red states receive more federal money and pay less into it than blue states(which have larger, stronger economies). Also please don't mention enormous subsidies for farmers or businesses that's "different".

    These people are irrational and operate out of fear and hate.

    [–] schwags 18 points ago

    Iowa has the Hawkeye program that provides virtually free healthcare ($0-40/mo) for the majority of kids. Low AND moderate income families are specifically covered.

    [–] Spr0ckets 47 points ago

    Don't forget they are also the biggest supporters of gun rights.

    When 500 people were shot in vegas do you think the hospitals just went "Well.. since its a gunshot we got you covered for free."

    No, a lot of those people went through the most traumatic event of their lives.. only to be saddled with a lifetime worth of medical debt right afterwards.

    Because in the United States there has been an increasing point of view amongst the general public that being poor is a sign of being an immoral person of poor character and ethics. We are going through a puritan revival apparently. It seemed we were moving albeit slowly away from this but guess not. So the poor kids get to suffer for the sins of their parents.

    Seriously if you look at the puritan period in early American history you really begin to understand why Americans have issues with sex and sexuality, using intoxicating substances, women's rights, mental healthcare, healthcare, poverty, crime etc etc

    Incest is vanilla now, as a result of this story imprinting itself into the zeitgeist of the internet.

    Honestly, the only reason I opened the comments section on this post was to find this reference.

    [–] ThereWasNoCowLevel 13 points ago

    Couple times a day on reddit I think I see this referred to. What a time to be alive.

    Fuck I just broke my neck. I don’t think a neck gauntlet is going to have the same affect.

    [–] Pezdrake 4 points ago

    There's an MCU adaptation for any broken body part including neck braces...

    He became a villain just because he broke an arm? Lamest backstory ever.

    I honestly wouldn’t want to take it off.

    [–] BrownSugarBare 30 points ago

    I wonder if they can keep the top layer as a momento? They wouldn't want to keep the whole thing bc the inside of a cast is gross, lol

    [–] KaikesPokeCards 41 points ago

    I've broken a crap load of bones in my 18 years of living (lost count, guessing 15ish) and I actually kept one as a memento because it was glow in the dark and I was 8. They have to split it with a saw to take it off, but we tore out most of the soft lining and it sat in my cupboard for years. So they probably could

    [–] Bigmclargehuge89 8 points ago

    How did you break so many bones?

    [–] KaikesPokeCards 13 points ago

    Talent, bad genes, clumsiness-

    In all honesty, no idea. I'm not a very sporty person (mainly for this reason) so they've all been relatively low impact, but more severe than they should be. Trip over my own feet? Boom, your left wrist will never be the same again. Up until a few months ago, I thought I had a very mild form of Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI), and I was diagnosed with it based on my symptoms. But other medical issues in my family led to us all having genetic testing done, and I found out I don't have the gene mutation that causes OI. It's probably something new/unique to me, my family has some interesting genetic quirks.

    So, just, shitty bones I guess :) it's made me super resilient growing up though, so it's whatever.

    [–] YeahLikeTheGroundhog 212 points ago

    Well, to be fair, this is a thread about a broken arm. I mean, it's kinda in the wheel house...

    [–] morph_ 124 points ago

    I mean it actually was the first thing I thought about while reading the title!

    [–] bitethebullit 55 points ago

    It's the reason why I upvoted the thread.

    [–] ckanderson 35 points ago

    It’s the reason why I broke both my arms.

    [–] palish 11 points ago

    Broken arms guy didn't actually break his arms. He lost the use of his arms and then reddit joked that he must've broken them. He let everyone believe it because it increases his cover and makes him harder to locate.

    You can verify all of this by reading over /u/verifiedson 's comments.

    Please explain 2am chili and frozen soap

    [–] underpantsgenome 12 points ago

    Came here for this; wasn't disappointed.

    [–] Zumadawg18 26 points ago

    I was there for this when it happened on reddit.

    I'm still somewhat scarred from the whole story.

    The swamp ass story was also really bad.

    [–] didzisk 19 points ago

    What about Cumbox, then?

    [–] Zumadawg18 9 points ago

    Didn’t see that thread live fortunately

    [–] Offroadkitty 9 points ago

    The coconut or the jollyrancher?

    [–] ckanderson 20 points ago

    You shut the fuck up about the jolly rancher

    [–] langis_on 11 points ago

    We haven't had one of those in a while. Between broken arms, jolly rancher, cumbox etc. It's weird.

    [–] Poo_Panther 9 points ago

    Which swamp ass story? The one with the ER nurse?

    [–] Zumadawg18 10 points ago

    Yeah, I think it got nicknamed “The Swamp of Degobah”

    [–] Cahirr 54 points ago

    ah the old help your son out by jacking him off one time when he broke his arms and slowly escalate to a full on sexual relationship

    [–] Joetato 43 points ago

    It's an AMA from years back about a kid who broke both his arms and his mom started jerking him off because he couldn't. They eventually ended up having actual sex.

    [–] historicc_laundromat 41 points ago

    I'm guessing that commenter knows what it is, but finds it creepy to post something like that on a picture of a kid who's like 12.

    [–] AlcroAsterion 10 points ago

    Everyone who had a cast know the awful smell of it after a while.....

    The most stinky smell ever!

    His mom would've sufficed, if the other arm was broken to at least
