Double Pneumonia Hospital Stay: $999,932

Alexandria Brooks, 46, of Hernando, Florida, was recently charged $999,932 for a month-and-a-half hospital stay for double pneumonia, which later developed into acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). She wanted to share her story because that one bill was just $67 short of one million dollars. Another one of her notable bills: $36,806 to be airlifted to a different hospital. “People ask me about my bills. I am grateful that I had insurance; however, it is not preventing my credit and finances from being ruined. Such a large deductible despite HUGE premiums paid and the disputes between the insurance and the providers leaves one very vulnerable, insured or not,” she said.
