Emergency room fees that are borderline extortion!! Almost $1000 to have my daughters temperature taken and ear exam because of fever. 4 hour wait period. And absolutely no indication that those expenses would be incurred. They make you sign a document which states there will be "standard ER fees" issued. Don't you think a reasonable human being would indicate to a father that having a temperature taken will cost him nearly $1000? Its unbelievable having come from Australia and now witnessing first hand the disgusting nature of the health system in this country. Where is the common decency to tell a family what will be involved in an ER waiting room upon arrival and check in with the staff? Its appalling. Everything here is driven by money and financial gain.
