30 of the 95 days I spent in the hospital produced a $641,982.10 bill (And I wasn’t even awake!)

Dr. John Reizer

Do not get sick in America without health insurance! For thirty days, I was billed $23,000/day and was heavily sedated the entire time.

During “treatment” prices and billing amounts are never discussed and you are unable to get answers about the cost of procedures.

Hospital corporations can and do charge ridiculously inflated prices. If you survive the physical assault on your body, the financial assault that comes your way will more than likely destroy everything you have worked for your entire life!

My health insurance plan costs over $1,700/per month. It is supposed to cover 100% of all yearly medical bills after $725.00.

My insurance company has not paid one dollar associated with the itemized bill displayed in this post. They have stated that the hospital was outside the network of eligible facilities.

This is the same insurance company (Molina Heath Insurance) that authorized my admittance to the medical facility under a COVID Emergency!

When I became ill back in September 2021, I attempted to go to a Molina in-network facility only to be turned away because the hospital was filled to capacity. I had no choice but to choose an out-of-network hospital that was later approved by my insurance plan.

Itemized bill

I was a practicing chiropractor for 36 years. Just imagine if a patient came to my office and I examined and adjusted the person’s spine after having them sign a consent to care document.

Next, I hand the patient a bill for $15,000.00. The patient submits the bill to their insurance company and the company agrees to pay $70.00.

I tell the patient they owe me the balance and I am going to sue them for the unpaid ridiculous amount. After I win a judgment, I place a lien on the patient’s real estate property and bank accounts.

Would the courts back me? I think not. Why should they back a hospital corporation that charges inflated fees and gets those fees reduced by 95% by insurance companies in-network?

This is the definition of health care and insurance fraud! It’s a two-tier billing system that charges one ridiculous price for certain patients and a much lower price for others.

What I have described in this post is supported by federal, state, and local governments throughout the United States. The corporate and other hospital systems have been price-fixing and price-gouging health care consumers for years. Then, when patients cannot pay or are underinsured, the corporations place liens and judgments on real estate and personal assets.

    I am so sorry, John! Hospital bills can almost be more terrifying than the illness itself.
    I was very afraid about this when my husband was put on the ventilator for 37 days a couple of years ago. But during the ordeal, I had called our insurance company to find out what would be covered. Our insurance covered everything except for the individual out of pocket amount for the year. Which is not cheap, but peanuts compared to the outrageous billing amounts charged as you have shown.
    And as you have stated, you were were admitted under COVID emergency.
    Maybe talking to knowledgeable people about it might be a good thing to do. Although maybe you already have.
    And aren’t the hospitals themselves supposed to check on the insurance of admitted patients?
    Oh again, John, I am so sorry. Your fight is not over! But my prayers and thoughts still go out to you!

    They are crooks supported by a global network of drug companies. The world is crazy, but you already know that.

    I am so sorry you are having to deal with this now. What a slap in the face after all you’ve been through.

    Molina has to pay, John. This is BS!

      I am confident they will pay the bill at the end of the day. I am not worried about it. If they don’t pay it, I have an attorney warming up in the bullpen! 🤣

        👍 😂
