reducing medical bill

We live in Mexico but go to states for major surgery and treatment. That said, my sister tore an arm muscle and went to the emergency room here at a private hospital. $117.00 USD for emergency services, nurse, X-ray, Dr, sling for arm and drugs. Colonoscopyís run north of $600. A CT scan is about 100$, full blood panel $25.00 and on and on. These are out of pocket with no insurance, US numbers are so far past ridiculous that itís just insane.

Granted I would not treat cancer or do open heart here but they have first class stabilization for strokes and heart that we can use before we head north.

The USA is at the top for extraordinary medicine.

But if you want something "simple", the cost is outrageous in the USA.
