Cancer Lesson #37: The Cost of Keeping A Breast

Cancer Lesson #37: The Cost of Keeping A Breast

When I got the bill for my new girl, I found the insurance company’s specificity on what they would and would not pay rather amusing.

Plastic surgeon’s bill $11,052 minus insurance payment $2,738.44 minus insurance adjustment $8,052.11 equals $261.45 that I had to pay.

What I don’t understand is the adjustment thing. Does the doctor really agree to take $8,000(!) off the original bill? So, $261.45 – my new breast would have been a bargain at ten times the price.
