The description of service is: Drug Screen, Single. Charge $228.00. After insurance I had to pay just under $30.00. I'm willing to scan my bill if anyone is doubting me.
No no, I don't doubt you, the pain in the rear about medical is,
we can charge whatever we want.

I've seen hospitals charge crazy amounts for crazy things.

It's good. Sorry if you thought I was singling you out. It wasn't my intent but I could see how it could be taken that way.

As for the costs, you're absolutely right. When I worked in the hospital, I couldn't believe the cost of charges from my department. I wasn't a highly paid person, but for me to enter a room for 30 seconds and do a simple task would cost the patient quite a bit of money. Have me do it for 10 patients on each floor and I would bring in a load of money for them.

While I don't miss the job, I miss some of the excitement that went with it and the knowledge that I helped someone.
