Erik Plate: ‘ER will run you dry’
To the editor:
Hello, I’m Erik and most of you might have known my mother, the late Kathie Johnson.
I recently took a trip to the emergency room after a nasty fall off a four-wheeler trailer last week and suffered a severe ankle sprain.
I love the staff at The Memorial Hospital. Everyone is really nice and I could joke with them like I usually do with everyone I meet.
I ended up getting an X-ray and an ankle brace (which was
absolutely useless, but I didn’t really notice since I was in so much pain at the time).
I recently got my bill. Keep in mind I don’t have insurance like most of the country, and good lord was it expensive —
$760 for less than an hour in the emergency .
Just a heads up to be careful if you don’t have insurance — that ER will run you dry.
