This image was taken by an American woman of a US hospitcal bill she was presented for six nights stay during treatment. This bill does not include her actual medical treatment, which was billed separately.

The woman's healthcare insurers refused to cover these charges, as is normal practice in the private US healthcare system and so she was left to cover all these charges out of her own pocket.

Many people in the UK believe they have nothing to fear from NHS privatisation, especially those who have existing private healthcare. But everyone needs to realise that the number one cause of bankruptcies in the US are healthcare bills and the majority of those people had medical insurance.
