5 stitches cost $5,000. I cut my hand at night after the urgent cares in the area had closed and I was worried that waiting until the morning to go to urgent care might cause infection/further damage. If I had known it would cost this much I would have risked it. Especially because when I got to Mad River there was only one doctor on staff, so I had to wait for 6 hours to be seen, defeating the purpose.
I've called to ask for a breakdown of my bill twice, one of those times the person I talked in the patient accounts department was completely rude and condescending. It was very clear she did not intend to help me or answer my questions. I went in to ask questions in person and fortunately met with someone much nicer. She told me I could file a complaint form and the hospital would investigate my case. So I filed the form and got a letter back that did not answer my questions or address my concerns, ignoring every specific point I made in my initial inquiry.
Also the hospital's online bill pay site is really really sketchy. The general appearance, the word "donate" in the address, and the lack of terms/conditions gives me no confidence in the site. I am absolutely not going to type my credit card number into it.
