In the last year, we have had a total billing of $188,133 with insurance paying $50,799 (about 27% of the total billed amount). This included a gallbladder removal for me (and 2.5 days in the hospital) and a quite an invasive surgery (and 5 days in the hospital including 2 days in the ICU) for the DW. Since we have Tricare, the actual amount of pocket was...well, it was minimal, I will tell you that.

Later this year, my DW will require another surgery to correct a pretty bad keloid scar that cannot be corrected by anyone that is in-network. Thankfully, we have authorization to have it done out-of-network (as was her original surgery) so I imagine we will see another 25-50K billed amount. I am *very* thankful that we have the authorization to get it done out-of-network...otherwise, it would be a VERY expensive proposition for us!
