If I were without insurance
this little illness would have set me back for at least 6 months. Today was trip #3 to the doc, for me a $15
co-pay per visit. The cost for someone without insurance; at least $80
My chest xray and possibly a second one next week, (please no) cost me nothing. I have no idea what someone without insurance would have paid. I'll guess $150
First group of drugs, steroid, inhaler, antibiotic, $18
co-pay for me, for someone without insurance $85
So here I am, I'm still not well. Now we go to antibiotic #2, a 14 day course. Because it was a generic, my co-pay was $7
. Even though it was a generic, someone without insurance would have had to pay $180
for 28 measly pills!
I wouldn't have had it to
pay. What then?
45 million people without insurance in the US.
