You might remember several weeks ago when something fell on my head and I was having prolonged headaches and feeling generally out of sorts. I went to the doctor and she wanted me to get a CT scan just to be sure nothing was wrong due to the weird symptoms I had.
I got the bill today, and it was $484.
I have decent health insurance being a federal employee, and they paid $300 and change. I'm not worried about the cost that's left for out of pocket, but holy crap lesson learned that "just to be sure" can be expensive.
I am still amazed sometimes at the stuff grown ups have to take care of that I never knew as a child or even young adult. Anything come to mind for you that is/was a shocker?
