The problem with those kinds of charges is that they are absolutely divorced from reality. The whole construct is based around healthcare insurance companies creating artificial "value", and the system, according to one recent study, spills about 75% of its total intake funds directly to the insurance companies, and not the hospitals/doctors/nurses/paramedics/etc.

There is no possible way that your hospital stay and surgery *actually* cost $50,000 dollars, it's just completely off-the-charts insane. And we wonder why healthcare is bankrupting the nation? Because it's bloody corrupt.

Conspiracy rant over.
