why is healthcare so expensive?

today, i was informed by my insurance company just how much my surgery ACTUALLY cost. it is absolutely appalling!!

surgery, hospital fees, anesthesia and operating room fees: $33,767.27
lots of x-rays: $483
leg casts, and wheelchair: $978
blood tests: $473

only having to pay a total of $150 for everything because of my awesome health insurance:

i guess living in this country pays for itself somewhere - i'm so glad majority of your costs were covered. are you recovering well?
